black lp + download

Released: 22nd Jan 2016


Unique among their furrowed brow peers, The Besnard Lakes are unafraid to marry textured, questing headphone sonics to the honeyed pleasure of radio hits past: the rapture of My Bloody Valentine entwined with the romance of Fleetwood Mac.

(Echoing prime FM they actually now have two girl/boy couplings in the line-up, keyboard player Sheenah Ko and guitarist Robbie MacArthur joining powerhouse drummer Kevin Laing and non-touring studio axe hero Richard White.) Imagine dreamy Beach House riding Led Zeppelin dynamics, with unabashedly androgynous vocal harmonies. any resident regulars will know we are massive fans of this montreal group & with their their exuberant fifth album, they continue to mesmerise & impress. fans of low's recent masterpiece 'ones and sixes', the dirty three or yo la tengo.
