Strange Trails [Exclusive Moss Green] [2xLP]
Initially conceived as a solo project, Lord Huron now benefits from the input of a backing trio.
The sound is a mix of rustic rockers and haunted singer/songwriter-styled excursions. The Sun Records vibe of "Until the Night Turns" recalls the Memphis spirit, while "Dead Man's Hand" feels like a tribute of sorts to Steve Earle and honest country music, despite never leaning on the usual country cliches. "Frozen Pines" is a sublime race against time.
