The Besnard Lakes – The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night

10 songs, 46.6 minutes long

The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night is the The Besnard Lakes’ sophomore LP, and it’s an interesting one. A blend of mid-seventies psychedelic progressive rock and mid-nineties shoegaze, the album puts forth a sound like no other. Filling a similar modern niche as Tame Impala, The Besnard Lakes continue the legacy of the old guard of psychedelic progressive rock bands that were so prevalent 30 years ago without treading old ground. While being something completely new, they are derivative enough that they aren’t something I’d be afraid to play in front of my electronic-phobic father. The female vocals that show up on a couple tracks add a nice touch, and the album is just the right length. I suspect that The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night is going to be in heavy rotation on my system for quite some time.

The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night is available IN VINYL on Amazon.

It’s also on CD if you don’t like vinyl.
