L.A. Unheard: Lord Huron gets 'Mighty'


Editor's note: Every week, our colleagues at Brand X’s L.A. Unheard column unearth one of L.A.’s best undiscovered acts.

The band: Lord Huron, the project of Michigan native-turned-Angeleno Ben Schneider.

The sound: The band's self-released "Mighty" EP is full of lush acoustic guitars and Midwestern-accented harmonies as warm as a winter fireplace, but it's the Caribbean-influenced percussion that fans Lord Huron's folk sound into flame.

The details: The "Mighty" EP, the band's second effort, was released earlier this month. Lord Huron will  play a number of shows in the coming days, including an opening gig Friday for fellow locals Avi Buffalo at the Echoplex, an in-store at Origami Vinyl on Sunday and another show at La Brea's Tar Pit bar on Monday.

The rest: Click over to Brand X to download the title track of "Mighty."
