A TAV Curator's Pick.

Strange Trails is the follow up to LordHuron's breakout debut Lonesome Dreams, which received widespread critical acclaim and was included in various 2012 ''Best Of'' lists.

The new record was written and produced by frontman Ben Schneider and recorded at the band's own Whispering Pines studio in Los Angeles.

Strange Trails is an anthology of weird fiction - a new collection of tales from the world introduced on Lonesome Dreams.

Schneider explains, ''There's no direct narrative connection between the two albums. The stories here are separated by time, location and characters. Many of the themes have carried over and evolved.'' Originally a musical and visual solo project by Michigan-native-turned-Angeleno Schneider, members now include Mark Barry, Miguel Briseno and Tom Renaud.

“From the outset, everything about Strange Trails feels bigger and more fully realized than their debut. Where that album, Lonesome Dreams, possessed a somewhat muted element of sameness in both its gauzy production and balladic tempos, an approximation of the title itself, Strange Trails finds the band moving in a number of stylistic directions that, coupled with their fuller, more assured sound, lends a weightiness to the album that helps imbue it with greater resonance.” –  PopMatters

More about Lord Huron:

Lord Huron is an American indie folk band based in Los Angeles. The group's debut album, Lonesome Dreams, was released in 2012 on Iamsound in the U.S. The band’s name was inspired by Lake Huron, the lake which band founder Ben Schneider grew up visiting, where he would spend evenings playing music around the campfire.

With the release of Lonesome Dreams, the band also slowly released a series of music videos, all filmed in a western '70s style, which Schneider says was the focal point and narrative for the album.“We had this fun idea that Lonesome Dreams was kind of this series of old adventure tales. It's sort of a collection of pulp fiction and we wanted the videos to kind of reflect that and have that same feel and style,” Schneider said in an interview. They also decided to release a theatrical version of the videos.
