The Besnard Lakes Are Back

The Besnard Lakes are offering a preview of their much-anticipated album, The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night, with the standout single, "Albatross." The single will also be made available on February 9th (8th in the UK) as a vinyl 12" with the exclusive b-side "Four Long Lines."

"Albatross," is a beautiful dreamy tune that sounds like a warped California pop record fed through a distortion pedal. Think classic shoegazing ala Pale Saints and you kind of have the right idea. It's fantastic stuff that only hints at how awesome the full album will be.

This is one albatross around your neck you won't want to get rid of.
