:: A must-listen from first song to last.
L.A.-based indie-folk outfit Lord Huron once started as a solo project by Michigan-born Ben Schneider [guitar/vocals] quickly grew into a full band which today also comprises Mark Barry [percussion/vocals], Miguel Briseño [bass/keys/percussion] and Tom Renaud [guitar/vocals]. Following 2012’s full-length debut Lonesome Dreams, the band is now about to release their sophomore LP Strange Tails. The album won’t be out before next Tuesday, but you can dig your ears into it right now.
Strange Tails drops officially on April 07, 2015 via IAMSOUND Records / Play It Again Sam. UK/European release on April 06. The set of fourteen tracks will be available as digital download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy digitally from iTunes or order your physical copy of Strange Tails from Amazon.
The album is now streaming in its entirety over at Gigwise. Strange Tails was recorded at the band’s own Whispering Pines studios in downtown L.A.
