My Morning Download: “Time To Run” by Lord Huron (playing Kung Fu Necktie in October)


The Los Angeles based Lord Huron is the band created by singer-songwriter Ben Schneider. Schneider was born in Michigan, studied art in college and lived in France and New York before moving to Los Angeles in 2005. In May 2010, Schneider traveled home to Michigan and spent a week on the shores of Lake Huron where he recorded the three songs that would comprise the Into the Sun EP that came out in June, 2010, followed by his second EP, Mighty, in November, 2010. Since the release of Schneider’s debut EP, Lord Huron has garnered a critical following in the music blogosphere for his tropical flavored, rhythmically fluid and atmospheric songs that are reminiscent of Paul Simon’s sweeping beauty, The Rhythm of the Saints. Lord Huron’s debut full length album Lonesome Dreams is being released on October 9th on I Am Sounds. Lord Huron plays at Kung Fu Necktie on Monday, October 8th. Below, download “Time To Run.”
