BOD: (8.2.10) Lord Huron
The sun is out today in Berkeley. I rifled through some new music and found the perfect track… Lord Huron’s “The Problem With Your Daughter”. I seriously can’t get enough of the song. It’s a great blend of layered self harmonies, a simple guitar track, clapping hands and a frickin’ harp. I listened more intently this time, realizing that this one man show has a lot to say. His subtle changes take you on a journey, with a toe-tappin’ beat, moments of airy sound brought home with some clever songwriting. It’s bubbly underwater sounds, could be the soundtrack for the next Wes Anderson film? It’s perfect submarine music.
Lord Huron is a Los Angeles dude, but that’s all I know, I am intrigued because I’ve only heard three tracks and I’m so so so so dying for a full-length album.
Lord Huron is clearly in a space of his own, his sound is unique and alluring. I’ve listened to his 3 song EP about 10 times and I still can’t get enough. It was recorded on Huron Lake shore, in Presque Isle, Michigan.
Buy it here.
Here is one track to get you as hooked as me.
