Before writing and recording Strange Trails, Ben Schneider of Lord Huron was inspired to make a feature film. He had characters in his head, a fictionalized plot and the urge to see his vision on screen. Then he realized it was much too difficult to get a movie made.
Instead, he settled on Strange Trails, a beautiful, dense and mysterious record that has all the characters in place, living together on strange trails, pieced together in “14 songs from the unknown.”
