Lord Huron - Lonesome Dreams - streaming on NPR
This is my most anticipated album of 2012, and now it’s streaming in full on NPR. Give it a listen.
Lonesome Dreams has “…songs that feel wide-open and ambitious, but also giddy and unpredictable. There’s motion to them, whether or not the percussion has kicked in. Songs like “Time to Run,” with its goofy Western-style video, have a roiling quality, while maintaining room to breathe and seethe along the way.
Out Oct. 9, Lonesome Dreams comes along at just the right time of year, meeting as it does between the beachy lightness of summer and the bittersweet plaintiveness of autumn. It straddles the seasons with disarming deftness — sunny enough to distract, sweet enough to comfort.”
