Fresh Track: Lord Huron “Time to Run”
If you haven’t heard Lord Huron before, well, scratch that. You have heard Lord Huron before. You just might not know it. Back in 2010, Ben Schneider released a solo EP called Into The Sun that was composed while Schneider spent time in his home state of Michigan while at, you guessed it, Lake Huron. After recruiting a band to perform live, a second EP entitled Mighty was released that same year featuring a great little song called “The Stranger” that made it’s way into an advertisement and into the ears of America. And while the majority probably didn’t seek out who or what that thirty second clip was, I happened to, and I’ve been waiting for more ever since.
That wish was granted a few weeks ago when word came that a debut LP was forthcoming on 10-9-12 from Schneider & Company entitled Lonesome Dreams along with the first single “Time To Run”. Schneider’s music is a folky trip out west with every song you hear. Much like a sunset – or rise over the mountains, it’s uplifting and inspiring music with an aura of beauty all around it. Midwesterners can catch him in person on Thursday evening of the MidPoint Music Festival in Cincinnati along with me. For now, start your day off right with “Time To Run” below.

I was introduced to Lord Huron when I saw them open for The RAA last year at Radio Radio (http://www.songkick.com/concerts/7832396-rural-alberta-advantage-radio-radio-at-radio-radio). I loved them live and hung out with them and RAA a bit after the show, but was really pissed when I heard their albums. Live they have so much energy, but their EPs I find flat and too strangely mixed. I guess that’s their style so that’s up to them – I probably won’t buy any more of their albums, but I’ll definitely see them live if they come to Indy again.
Thanks for stopping by Dan, and good to know. I’ll make sure to give the record a spin on Spotify prior to purchase.
I should qualify too – I’ll listen to more of the new album before making a final decision. “Time to Run” sounds a lot better to me than their EPs…
Yep. Gotta give em’ a little time to grow up!
