Show Preview: The Besnard Lakes @ Casbah Sunday November 17, 2013

The Besnard Lakes
Montreal is known for being home to arguably the most popular indie rock band today. Another band hailing from the  French Canadian city that have been nominated for the Polaris Music Prize (twice) but have forged a much different path are The Besnard Lakes. The brainchild of husband and wife (Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas), the group tours as a quartet. Their fourth album, Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO (Jagjaguwar), continues in the shoegaze, psychedelic rock vein. A key ingredient to the band's sound is their overall sense of creating songs which contain pop elements. This is what separates these Canadians from their peers. In addition, Lasek owns a recording studio in Montreal, and his production experience translates well to his own project.

See one of Canada's best kept secrets, The Besnard Lakes, at the Casbah this Sunday, November 17. Fellow Canadians Elephant Stone set the stage. Tickets can be purchased here.
