All messed up, with nowhere to go
I stare at myself in the mirror alone
It's hard to make friends when you're half in the grave
But I ain't dead yet, and I've got something to say

Oh, yeah

You've got holes in your clothes and booze on your breath
You look like hell and you smell like death
Oh

There's a stranger in my eyes again
I swear to God I don't know him
You're tired of me, I'm tired of you
So turn around and leave me to myself

Oh, yeah
You've got holes in your clothes and booze on your breath
You look like hell and you smell like death
Oh

I've been out way too long, I'm heading right for the edge
If she asks about me, tell her I'm not dead yet

You've got holes in your clothes and booze on your breath
You look like hell and you smell like death
Oh

It sounds like the Lumineers and Elvis had an illicit back-alley tryst.

MOAR, please!

Well they do. The whole album, videos, pandemic-live video shows, and concerts all have a concept thread running through it for this one.


1 week from today they will be in Eugene, looking forward to seeing this group live!

Ummm... A&R refers to a record label career position. 

An A&R (artists and repertoire) representative is responsible for finding promising new artists for a record label or music publisher to sign.

Now you know. 


Umm that's not what he/she was referring to. Try it in the sentence. 

"artists and repertoire representative inoffensive bland." Yea, that makes sense. 

Even funnier to suggest that AOR somehow reflects bland music. Quite the contrary for the day. AOR allowed DJ's to play whatever cut they wanted from the selected ALBUMs. Versus only the preselected hit songs. 

I"m digging these guys more and more...
Love the “Ride A White Swan” vibe uh huh huh.
I love this band!  They're on my bucket list of concerts I'd really like to attend, now that such events are starting to happen again.
And I love that they wrote a song named after a line from Monty Python's Holy Grail movie.

It is.
Really coming around on these guys. So much so that we've gotten tex to see them this summer with First Aid Kit at Merriweather Post Pavillion in MD; taking the granddaughter to see if they can provide a counterbalance / antidote to the pop pablum that constitutes her usual & customary musical diet. Fingers crossed!

LOL you don't even know that it's not "A&R" is AOR - Adult Oriented Rock. You're also ignorant of the differences in the music media landscape since whatever songs were made that you thing are "classics." Music is much more decentralized now and this is soooooooooooooooo far what mainstream radio plays that your comments are irrelevant.

Not terrible...but really do we need ANOTHER band with this indie rock/folk sound?  It's all so very bland.  Like very record label A&R inoffensive bland.  It's like the art in a hotel room.  It's there on the wall.  Better than a blank wall...but there's no way you go home and tell your spouse about it...

Oh and just an edit.  The thumbs down on this is hilarious.  Like really?  Can you honestly tell me that some random Lord Huron track is going to get played in 20 years like its some sort of classic.  Not a chance.  I'd drop a deserved f -bomb on that, but decency and all that.  Like I said above...not terrible...just bland and completely forgettable...

I didn't see where anyone asserted that a song of theirs would "get played in 20 years like its some sort of classic".  Some people like this song and other songs of theirs.

Wow, I was just saying that to my wife and then saw your post. I hear what you're hearing, absolutely. Great stuff, great fun.

Yes, indeed!  Now that music venues are starting to open up, I would love to see this band live.  It will have to be a concert north of the 49th parallel, however, unless the border opens up for us "unsafe" Canucks to venture south.
