Twenty-seven-year-old multimedia artist Ben Schneider has hired actors to stage a fake lecture about a lost civilization of Antarctica and pulled off a guerrilla exhibition of his work in a French chapel. One would be forgiven for assuming his new identity—crafting dreamy, international sound-quilts under the name Lord Huron—is likewise embedded with secret meaning and artistic rebellion. More

Lord Huron's songs are steeped in an adventurer's vocabulary. From the initial EPs when Ben Schneider made music on his own to 2012's debut LP Lonesome Dreams, Lord Huron's protagonist is always in tune and at odds with the elements-the darkness and light, mountains and valleys of the earth and soul both.

But breaking it down to individual elements only tells part of the story.
