Lord Huron embraces wanderlust for sold-out Noise Pop 2014 show

Photos by Paige K. Parsons Once in a while, certain songs really grip me—Wild Cub's "Thunder Clatter" or The Middle East's "Blood" for example—and Lord Huron's "The Stranger" is one of them. I don't know exactly why, but that song, like many others on Lonesome Dreams and 2010's Mighty EP, is enveloping and wholly detaches me from where I am. It creates its own emotional context and places me within it. It's not rare, though, for Lord Huron to invent a theme for the listener to get lost inside for the sake of their music's reception. Lord Huron’s Lonesome Dreams (released in 2012) [...]

Editors' Picks: What We've Been Listening to This Week (Lord Huron, Sore Eros & Kurt Vile, Exray's)

Lord Huron Anna: Seeing Lord Huron at this year's Treasure Island Music Festival was an unexpected treat.

Live This Month: October 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #289) In Live This Month, we sample some of the great local and out-of-town bands performing in the coming month in the San Francisco Bay Area. Live music in the Bay Area in October means two big local music festivals in Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and Treasure Island, but smaller indoor temptations abound all month long. Chris Cohen has a resume full of involvement in great bands, including Deerhoof and Cryptacize, but his new solo album is an intimate work that ranks as one of this [...]

Live This Month: February 2011 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #242)

Live This Month: February 2011 In Live This Month, we sample some of the great local and out-of-town bands performing in the coming month in the San Francisco Bay Area. February can only mean one thing in Bay Area indie music: the annual and much celebrated Noise Pop Festival, now in its nineteenth year. There's so much good Noise Pop stuff that we'll be devoting a separate podcast to it in a few weeks. Before the fest, too, there are plenty of great shows to occupy your time, including Beach House, The Radio Dept. and MINKS on tour, and locals [...]
