Lord Huron Lonesome Dreams

If you’re sick of folk music with pastoral tones and dreamy lyrics, Lord Huron is not for you. If you’re sick of landscapes and longings for something more, the idea that a mythology can be created through sound and song, the hope that life is more than just a series of days on a string — don’t listen to this song.

The latest single from the band’s album of the same name, “Lonesome Dreams” is the quintessential feel-good folk track but it doesn’t feel lapsed or recycled. Instead, Ben Schnieder and his cohort of musicians have created a song that feels like a resurrection — the bones of old folk ideas walk again with new electronic skin and it feels like a miracle.
