Ben Schneider describes “Strange Trails,” his new album as Lord Huron, as an anthology of weird fiction with “no direct narrative connection” between this their second release and 2012′s widely lauded and lovely “Lonesome Dreams.” “The stories here are separated by time, location and characters,” the Los Angeles.-based Michigan native explains, although “many of the themes have carried over and evolved.” What has also carried over is Lord Huron’s palette of burnished Americana. If there’s a way to sound like a John Ford Western, Schneider and bandmates Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion) and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals) have it down. The new single “Fool for Love” traverses the dusty plain at a comfortable gallop, spinning a tale about man competing for a woman’s affection. “Strange Trails” is out on April 7th via IAMSOUND Records.
