Roaring To The Top

The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night is officially on the short list of my favorite albums of the year. Their previous efforts were both pretty good, but this one is just on another level. My server is down, but here's a free one from the album courtesy of Jagjaguwar. Vocal duties are shared between husband-and-wife duo Olga Goreas and Jace Lasek.The band will play with Washed Out, Small Black and Warpaint on March 17th at The Mohawk for the Austinist/WOXY party, then play an official showcase with Broken Social Scene, Band of Horses, and Drive-By Truckers on the 18th at Stubb's. They are also scheduled to play the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on March 23rd.

The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night is available for pre-order with a full download of the album ready the instant you make your order.
