Of Monsters And Men
Of Monsters And Men
"Of Monsters and Men put muscle behind their prettiness, turning songs from cute to grand..." - Rolling Stone

"The reasons for their success are simple: terrific songs that combine the folky with the epic, and instantly infectious choruses big on "la la la"s and "hey hey"s." - The Guardian

"It’s a sugary confection; don’t come here for complexity. But even the most cynical listener can’t help but be lured in by these tunes: in the blink of an eye, you’ll find yourself dancing to Mountain Sound and singing along with Six Weeks. Meanwhile, Slow and Steady and Sloom are atmospheric ballads that sparkle and swoon. Once you get the message, little of this debut album will surprise. However, its consistency is undeniable. There isn’t a bad pop song here, and the balance between whimsy, sensitivity and boisterous fun is expertly weighted. Little Talks is dominating the airwaves, but Of Monsters and Men are far more than one-hit wonders." - BBC

Lord Huron
Lord Huron is a musical and visual project created by Ben Schneider. Originally a solo project, collaborators now include Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion), Brett Farkas (guitar, vocals) and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals). Ben Schneider was born in Michigan and started playing music as a child. He studied art in college and lived in France and New York before moving to Los Angeles in 2005 to pursue a career in the visual arts.

In May 2010, Schneider traveled home to Michigan and spent a week on the shores of Lake Huron. There at the lake, where many of his formative experiences had come to pass, Schneider recorded the three songs that would comprise the Into the Sun EP. He released the EP online in June and dispersed a small number of CDs complete with his own artwork. Lord Huron's first live show was in August 2010. Schneider released his second EP, Mighty, in November 2010.


The band toured heavily in 2011, continuing to develop a live show. In January 2012, Lord Huron signed with independent label, IAMSOUND Records. The first full-length album from Lord Huron, Lonesome Dreams will be released in September 2012.
