Lake of Fire
The Besnard Lakes grace our presence here next Wednesday, 31st March, at Cargo, supported by the wonderful Wolf People (featured earlier here on Sonic Masala). The Canadian band, based around husband and wife Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas, Besnard lakes are an apocolyptic indie group who create dense layered textures that provides a near perfect darkness. A darker Arcade Fire with a predilection for dirge, Besnard Lakes' 3rd LP, Besnard Lakes...Are The Roaring Night enamours its listeners with epic sounds, quiet/loud dynamics, and an band that delves in the fine balance between the haunting and the bludgeoning. Its gonna be a great gig - make sure you're there.
