I like them, I have seen this band a few times live as I have been following them since their beginnings, and they seem to continue in this same direction, according a lot of attention to adventure and details and this video is no exception.
The first single off the second album was Huge, the second less so, but the second was the weakest link on this very beautiful folk rock -though not folk like Roger McGuinn, it is an indie folk with rural sweep and uplift and some of the strongest songs of the year – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – A-
The World Ender – Lord Huron – I dismissed this out of hand the other day but more out of pique that it wasn’t “Fool For Love” than anything personal, a coupla more listens and it reveals itself as a twangy West meets rockabilly song with a very tasty drum roil – B+
Definitely Drake’s week, but that Lord Huron may well be a case of lightning striking, because it is just a terrific little rockabilly track that begins and ends like a sweet ambient call. A masterful song. Otherwise both Kate and Letts choices were a little random, both albums have a lot of great songs.
