The Besnard Lakes
Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO
Street: 04.02
The Besnard Lakes = Memoryhouse + Telefauna
This album would pair best with a morphine drip. This shoegaze sonata is lush and minimalistic all at once. The chorus for "The Specter" sounds like it came straight from from Veckatimest. Husband and wife Jace Lasek and Olga Gorea command their four piece like a stadium rock orchestra, pumping out an album that is the indie equivalent to The Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream. None of the songs stand out to me in particular, because the album melts together so perfectly. -Cody Hudson
