It was one of those ‘Where did this band come from?’ situations. The Besnard Lakes just seemed to appear out of nowhere, bringing a set of amazing psych-rock and a smoke machine with them. I was blown away by their live show and, since seeing them, they’ve released “Are the Dark Horse” to widespread critical acclaim and now everyone everywhere is digging them.  As far as I’m concerned, with their swirling, brooding, epic songs featuring great vocal harmonies and space-rock guitars, it’s hard not to dig what they’re doing. I had more to say about The Besnard Lakes, but since it is rather late I’m gonna stop there and the music speak for itself. I hope you all had a fantastic Canada Day.
