Another album in heavy rotation here at WCXC is Lonesome Dreams, the 2012 debut offering from indie folk rockers, Lord Huron. The songs roll right along, and there’s something dreamy and transporting about them. Good for the road and good for listening at home.

The video for “Time to Run,” above, filmed like an old Western, with foreign-language subtitles, is pretty great.

Lord Huron will be touring the US and Canada from the end of January to early March. Shows are starting to sell out. Definitely worth a look.

If you’re interested in ships, and you’re here in California, check out the Lady Washington, a replica of a late 18th-century ship of the same name. The original Lady Washington was the first ship to round Cape Horn and the first American ship to reach the Pacific Northwest.

The replica ship is in San Francisco through tomorrow. You can even sail with the boat on a bay sail or along certain passages, from SF to Rio Vista in the Delta, for example. When she’s not sailing you can go aboard for a tour and her friendly crew will answer questions. She’s docked at Pier 40.

The ship will be making its way down the coast to San Diego by December and back up the coast to Washington, where she’s based, in 2013.

Here’s the ship’s calendar.

Here’s a nice tour of a Pinzgauer 710K. The 710 has the same wheelbase as a jeep but seats seven!

Canadian video editor Luc Bergeron sampled almost 180 clips to create this 4-minute trip around the world. He mated the fast-paced, quick-cutting footage to a haunting song called “Wolf” by the Swedish sister duo, First Aid Kit.

The resulting piece, Welcome to Earth, is remarkably beautiful and will almost certainly spark the urge to travel.

Clicking the still image above or the title link will take you to a page where you can watch the video. It’s definitely full-screen worthy.
