The Besnard Lakes – The Innocent

The Besnard Lakes (TBL) are a married writing duo from Canada. Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas form the indie rock band from the hot bed musical scene in Montreal, Canada. Their third full length album is known as The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night and owe its straight-forward rock sound to many influences.

Recording since 2003, TBL hints at older influences. The sample included here is classic TBL haunting lyrics, though when Jace Lasek harmonizes — the ghost of the Beach Boys is somewhere present. And the counter melody later in the piece, outright steals cords from Boston. All that is not necessarily a bad thing at all, and there is a lot of positive energy here. An album that begs for continuous rotation.

Give it a listen. Enjoy.
