Product Description

BBC Review

Michigan’s Ben Schneider, the driving force behind Lord Huron, is a man with a grand, multi-media vision and a penchant for the wide open spaces of the mythic American West. This debut long-player arrives with additional short films and ‘imagined novels’ by mysterious fictional wordsmith George Ranger Johnson, designed, according to Schneider, to create “a world with its own mythology”.

For all that, Lord Huron is, at heart, a rootsy, all-American affair, albeit with added sonic dimensions. It offers an ingenuous, prairie-wide signature that’s closer to the numinous folk-rock of Fleet Foxes than any self-consciously ‘arty’, pan-genre peregrinations.

Indeed, the kinetic, major chord assault of opener Ends of the Earth very much sets the tone for an album which inexorably lassos the listener with it soaring, Technicolor harmonies (which threaten to, but never quite turn into a full choral yodel), glinting, reverb-soaked guitars and propulsive rhythms. At times, it’s like listening to urgent country music emanating from the dusty knave of a vast gothic cathedral.

There is innovation aplenty here, in fact. The opening to The Man Who Lives Forever is based around beautiful, interleaved gamelan chimes – miles away from folk-rock central casting. Elsewhere, subtle, iridescent electronic elements weave in and out of the plangent superstructure, adding genuine cinematic texture to music that already, inevitably, summons the gallant desert spirit of Sergio Leone and Sam Shepard.

Lyrically, Schneider certainly occupies the persona of the classic, questing ‘Wild West’ loner, keeping things to almost sound-bite-like simplicity (“I walk by a moonlit lake / A cold wind blows and my bones start to ache,” goes the title track). For all his novelistic ambitions, uncomplicated song titles such as Time to Run and I Will Be Back One Day hardly suggest profound literary meta-texts. But that’s just fine, because these are not so much ‘songs’, in the traditional sense, as mini screenplay scenarios, dusty-booted vignettes of life and love on the edge of a scenic wilderness.

Ultimately, God is less in the details, here, and Lonesome Dreams’ success lies largely in the irrefutably vaulting sweep of the music and the ineffable air of melancholy-dented redemption which it so effectively conjures.

--David Sheppard

This is a brilliant album and deserves to be a huge hit. It is one of those rare albums with no dud songs or filler. The harmonies are amazing , and blend perfectly with some great guitar playing. My favourite tracks were ghosts on the shore and lullaby. Buy this album and bore your friends by keep talking about it! He also has two great ep's out too

By Red on Black TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 Jan. 2013
Format: Audio CD
Were you to put the name "Lord Huron" into a musical thesaurus then the name of the the Fleet Foxes would undoubtedly appear. Certainly there is no denying that if Robin Pecknold took this band to court for the opening track "Ends of the Earth" the judge would undoubtedly throw the book at the former and award damages to the Fleet Foxes songwriter. But once you get into the meat of the album the comparison is rather perplexing since any influence-sleuth who gives the excellent "Lonesome Dreams" a spin could argue that this is no Seattle influenced one trick pony and that Ben Schneider the resident clever bod behind it has assembled an album full of soaring harmonies, nice pastoral narratives and a ear for a very fine tune. He supported in this task by a fine cast of supporting muso's including Mark Barry (percussion and vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass and percussion), Brett Farkas (guitar and vocals) and Tom Renaud (guitar and vocals). Those looking for wider references will find them throughout "Lonesome Dreams" thus on some songs you get a snatch of My Morning Jacket ("She lit a fire" which is a real standout), on others a frisson of Animal Collective ("Time to Run") and finally that sort of percussive driven rock that Yeasayer have only mastered in parts ("Brother"). The latter track is an mightily infectious and rumbustious mix of African sounding rhythms and drums plus a strong if rather nasally vocal from Ben Schneider. But it is the glorious last track on this album "In the wind" which impresses most. It starts with a humming electronica and soft vocal backdrop and then pounds into a huge anthem with a melody so strong it could lift weights and is genuinely lovely.Read more ›

Bought this after reading a recent review on Lord Hurons latest release. Excellent album with almost a theme running through the entire listen. Fleet Foxes are an obvious reference point but there are African type rhythms going on that want to make you close your eyes and imagine the Serengeti. Outstanding listen.

I won't say the album was a disappointment after the fantastic single Ends of the Earth but the other tracks take a bit of getting used to. Be patient and I reckon you'll come to appreciate the whole compilation.

I like this album primarily for the wonderful sense of space it manages to convey. Although I think I have to classify this as 'Americana', it's really good stuff. The term 'soundscape' is pretty appropriate. Excellent decompression music.

I love this album. I had never heared of Lord Huron before and just listened to the snippets of the MP3 album because I liked the album cover. I was more than delighted with the download - the music and songs are just brilliant so much so I have booked tickets to go to one of his live gigs next month.

I saw LH live about 18 months ago, and was blown away, so looked forward to hearing this album. Took a few listens to form an opinion, but it's good, but not as good as it could have been. Try it, but look past FF comparisons that a lot of reviewers have made, 4 Stars about right.
