The new BESNARD LAKES 12″, entitled “Casino Nanaimo”, is now available for pre-order.
In early 2007, the Besnard Lakes released a full-length album on Jagjaguwar that quickly made it onto numerous and budding best-albums-of-the-year short-lists by a whole range of music-listening pedigree — critics, casual and not-so-casual rock listeners, garden variety pop fans, and headphone junkies. Now, on the heels of “The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse”, these inspired Montrealers continue what they’ve started, re-stoking the flames and releasing two additional tracks, as embodied on a 12-inch vinyl single.
Side A is “Casino Nanaimo”, a place where repetitive sound and lights engulf addicted gamblers all vying for space on the eternal wheel of fortune. And then there is side B, “Devastation (alternate version)”, the unedited and original straight-to-two-track nine-minute version, recorded live-off-the-floor at Breakglass Studios.
