The Besnard Lakes
The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night
(Jagjaguwar)
Releasing: 9 March

“Albatross”, the new single from the upcoming The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night LP, doesn’t have nearly as depressing a sound as the title would make you think. The effect of its dreamy vocals and elongated instrumentation is actually borderline uplifting; if the Ancient Mariner had this on his iPod, he might have been cool with his mates dying off one by one with cursed looks in their eyes. Two Canadian and many European tour dates are below the jump.

"Nils Pihl calls it, "Newtonian engagement", that is, when "an engaged player will remain engaged until acted upon by an outside force". That's "progress".
