Dark, atmospheric, and dreamlike, Montreal's the Besnard Lakes return with their brand new album, 'The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night' on the much esteemed Jagjaguwar label. Founded by husband and wife team, Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas, Besnard Lakes have become a cult and critical success, releasing two albums, including 2007's Polaris Music Prizenominated 'The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse'. Since then, the band have also composed and performed an original score for the Mark Ruffalo-directed independent film, 'Sympathy for Delicious', which has since been accepted into the prestigious 2010 Sundance Film Festival. It's this cinematic sweep and panoramic consciousness which filters into '... Are the Roaring Night'. Boasting an instrumental majesty reminiscent of the Arcade Fire or Black Mountain, the album also manages to be a haunting pop masterpiece, invoking shades of the Beach Boys, Phil Spector, Fleetwood Mac, Roy Orbison and Mazzy Star. 'The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night' was tracked and recorded on Breakglass Studio's latest acquisition: A 1968 Neve germanium mixing console rumored to have been used to record portions of Led Zeppelin's 'Physical Graffiti'. a twisted pop chronicle; an eerie guitar epic; a fuzzed-out wall-of-sound; 'The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night' is a hazy masterwork, which more than warrants Billboard Magazine's recent assertion that the group are one of the "Best Bets of 2010".
