Lord Huron

As the year comes to a close, we're wrapping up these year-end lists from artists and other people in the music world. Today we posted lists by BV radio host Nick Masi, Gardens & Villa, and Brooklyn Bowl talent buyer Adam Geringer-Dunn. Browse our "Best of 2012" tag for many more. Now here's one from Ben Schneider, frontman of LA folk rockers Lord Huron. The list includes a couple veteran folk singers, who most likely influenced Ben's own writing, two very different and very notable experimental music leaders, Lord Huron tourmates Night Moves, and a '70s Afghan pop star.
