This week on Featured Album Fridays, I’m showcasing the 2010 still unreleased album from The Besnard Lakes – Are The Roaring Night.
Here is the description of The Besnard Lakes from their Last.FM:
The Besnard Lakes are a progressive rock band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Formed by the husband and wife team of Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas.
The band are currently a six-piece centered around the atmospheric songs of Lasek and Goreas, whose expansive sound culls from numerous aspects of rock ‘n’ roll history. It is completed by Kevin Laing, Steve Raegele, Nicole Lizee and Richard White.
Their debut album, Volume I, was released in a limited 1000 copies edition in 2003 and later rereleased in October 2007.
Their sophomore album, The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse, was recorded at Lasek’s own Breakglass Studios, with members of fellow canadian bands Stars, The Dears and Godspeed You! Black Emperor/A Silver Mt. Zion making guest appearances.
The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse was on the shortlist for the 2007 Polaris Music Prize.
The album is yet to be released (with a March 10, 2010 release date!) but it’s a great album nonetheless. They’re a Canadian act (From Montreal, Quebec!) so definitely check out their album once it drops into stores and iTunes. For now, the stream is below, enjoy!
