Lord Huron’s Recent Album, ‘Vide Noir’

Somewhat underappreciated, but nonetheless gloriously indie band Lord Huron attempt to inhabit a purposeful place of artistic depth. They are hidden architects of a forgotten musical age, crafting a vintage spectrum across a green-hued backdrop, sounding something slightly like psychedelic cowboys gathered around a campfire in their latest album, Vide Noir.
