Indonesian spaghetti Western meets experimental West Coast pop? Hell yes, here's the new single from Lord Huron.

Lord Huron
I love Time To Run, the new single by LA based alt pop band Lord Huron: it's a big Appalachian infused pop melody accompanied by a wonderful spoof video of a bad 'spaghetti' Western (complete with indecipherable Indonesian subtitles) that was shot on a shoestring in the searing desert heat.

Working from source material, our concept was pretty clear from the beginning. We were really looking for a collaborator to bring the idea to life and enhance it without much of a budget. I’ve been friends with (director) Evan Weinerman for a couple of years. We share a lot of similar references and had talked about working together for a while so it seemed like a natural choice. I knew he was good at thinking creatively and stretching a budget. In general, I like working with people I know personally because we can speak freely and call each other’s bullshit without feeling awkward. It just makes the ideas flow easier.
