Lord Huron
Either band on its own would be noteworthy but, together, the Lord Huron and Widowspeak bill is a deep, beckoning lake of indie-rock atmosphere. With sonics that are quietly grand and melodies that are persistently lovely, headliner Lord Huron is the picture of pastoral nobility. A cinematic ideal of trail and horizon, they draw their rolling folk sound with a dreamy pop resonance to render Western panoramas in a halo of golden rays. It’s a tall, crafted aesthetic that’s placed them as one of today’s lushest, most well-rounded indie-folk bands. Dealing in a slightly different kind of reverie, the reclined breezes of opener Widowspeak weave summery, vaguely narcotic mystery like a more lucid, pop-minded Mazzy Star. Although their next album (All Yours) doesn’t arrive until September, they’ll be peeping some of these alluring new songs live. It’s some of their most distilled work, so show up early. 

7 p.m. Tuesday, July 21 | The Beacham, 46 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | thebeacham.com | $23-$35
