][uron :: Tracks 2008-2010 (Self-Released)

Tracks 2008-2010 is a great starting point for the Huron sound—a musical curriculum vitae that features relaxed, next-level electronic audio-works. From post-industrial slivers to dark-ambient realms, soundtrack-driven themes are elevated to reveal new layers of isolation.
