Pretty sweet, eh? Get twitterin’, folks!

Okay, though I have a photo of a serene moment on a lake by Katie up above, maybe the following recent photo The Besnard Lakes themselves would’ve been more appropriate…

Because that’s certainly closer to what I’m hearing right now on this unbelievable new album by them, The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night!

How do I describe this.. oh my. It’s part dream pop, yeah, full of Beach Boy like harmonies all over the place & what not, but it’s also gorgeous hypnotic rock that vaguely reminds me of Pink Floyd of old? Ish? Maybe? Definitely a little “proggy” at times (yay!), and then there’s that icy bit of Scandinavian flavour that seems to bring happy shivers down my spine.

Okay, I just re-read that paragraph and that sounds like a hot mess. It’s not. It’s stunning. I’ve listend 5 or 6 times now and each time it just pulls me in and takes me god knows where, but certainly someplace not of this world, much more dreamscapish and completely “epic”.

Just wow!
