The Besnard Lakes – The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night (new album / MP3)

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.
