THE BESNARD LAKES – A Coliseum Complex Museum (Jagjaguwar)

The new album mentioned in the last column is now here, and as expected it doesn’t disappoint. The band have their signature sound and they stick with it – densely textured songs consisting of lush harmonies and swathes of shoegazey guitar, with the falsetto vocals of Jace Lasek layered over the top. ‘Golden Lion’ is a standout, but really all of these songs are exactly what any Besnard Lakes fan would crave.
