Lord Huron

When: Mon., April 20, 9 p.m. 2015

Ben Schneider is the latest is a recent line of striking troubadours playing what you might call rockabilly/folk noir. As leader of Los Angeles quintet Lord Huron, he sounds like a more upbeat version of the oh-so-lonesome AA Bondy meets a less frenetic Dan Sartain. On their latest album, Strange Trails, Schneider channels a cast of fictional characters whose elaborate backstories stretch and soar over spooky reverb. Though the narratives are unique the sentiment is perfectly familiar. Trails is for hopeless cynics and romantics looking to get swept up and lost for a spell. "I don't know what I'm supposed to do/ haunted by the ghost of you," he sings on the slow-burning "Night We Met," offering a real gut punch for those carrying a torch for the one who slipped away. Don't miss opening act Leon Bridges, a soul singer with retro flair in sound and style right down to his high-waisted pants and wingtip kicks. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
