No, Lord Huron is not an aristocrat turned musician. It’s a band from Los Angeles who here present their second album Strange Trails. With country music really kicking off again in the US, the timing of this MOR post-Bruce Springsteen record couldn’t be better. Think The War On Drugs minus the drenched reverb. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Play It Again Sam.

Oh God what have War on Drugs done? This is the second new album this week which is under the impression that it’s totally fine to blatantly reference Bruce Springsteen and John Cougar Mellencamp. At one point in history they’d be shot for this but the trailblazing War on Drugs have made it ok….so it’s ok.

They’re a confident bunch and they show their intent to add themselves to the pantheons of classic widescreen Americana on opener ‘Love Like Ghosts’ with it’s ‘50’s slapback echo and Springsteen- weeping-into-the-dash-of-his-Corvette vocals. ‘Until the Night Turns’ proves that they can have a good time too, blasting along in such a manner that suggests that it would have been playlisted by Richard Skinner in ‘88. Seriously though this is impressive stuff especially if you like the 80’s look-back merchants such as Tom Petty, Chris Isaak and Los Lobos. They have quiffs, play massive double basses  and there’s 14 songs here of varying quality  - sometimes Elvis Presley ish, sometimes Johnny Cash and Hank Wangford.  The worry, as the catchy ‘Fool For Love’ bristles along, is...are they just a dusty Americana take on Mumford and Sons?
