Press accolades continue to roll in for THE BESNARD LAKES

This week, The Besnard Lakes released their Jagjaguwar debut, The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse, to a warm reception all over the globe. Among the praise heaped on this musically ambitious Montreal six-piece is Pitchfork’s stellar review (not too shabby 8.2 score, along with the “Also Recommended” tag), that enthused, “…instead of coming down, the Besnards turn it up another notch thanks to bassist/Lasek’s belle Olga Goreas’ star turn on “Devastations”, a hellacious, fuck-the-man screen delivered in 70s-smooth girly harmonies that provides an uncanny contrast to song’s monstrous psych-metal groove and — oh yes — climactic three-way drum solo.”

New BESNARD LAKES Album, PINK MOUNTAINTOPS 7″ Available For Pre-order Now!

Our two superfantastic February releases are now available for pre-order, including:

- The Besnard Lakes – The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse

The Besnard Lakes have shown that they are masters of finely-honed experimental pop songs that invoke the eerie Lynchian setting as aided and abetted by the music of Julee Cruise. But, on The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse, the band throws into the mix a mad dash of Fleetwood Mac proportioned swagger and ambition. Not so incidentally, the Besnard Lakes have created a masterpiece that will resonate within all quarters, amongst critics, casual and not-so-casual rock listeners, garden variety pop fans and headphone junkies.

- Pink Mountaintops – Single Life b/w My Best Friend 7″

“Single Life” is yet another in a long line of great fuzzed out Velvet-styled gems by Pink Mountaintops, sped up ever so slightly to be in synch with the minds of akathisiacs everywhere. And the reverse side, “My Best Friend”, is the more affecting and spiritual of the two, perhaps McBean’s most beautifully crafted song to date.
