VIDEO: Lord Huron - "The Stranger"

"I Can't Trust Anyone or Anything These Days"The new Lord Huron music video for "The Stranger" is pure Patrick Daughters meets Cold Mountain. It gives us a funny feeling deep inside! Maybe it's the revolutionary-era cutie hipsters in their E.Williamsburg-era glasses.

Maybe it's the song itself. Lord Huron's jams hark to the hauntingest of Jim James (Yim Yames? Jim James? Whatever...), with splashes of tribal drumming fun and reverbed vocal harmonies. This song hits us hardest with the Paul Simon melancholy of the lines,
I can't trust anyone or anything these days but I know what you want and why / Of all the strangers you're the strangest that I've seen / I'm not afraid to die.

In 2010, we didn't stop playing his epic jam "Mighty" for months. Wholeheartedly, I still recommend this song if you ever need to jump around your room for 3 minutes and feel better about life.

And apparently Lord Huron cares that you feel better about life too, as they offer the song for free to listeners. Just don't forget to get the rest of the self-released record, aptly entitled Mighty EP, here.

You think you can have it? / Then come and get it!
