NEW ALBUM THE BESNARD LAKES ARE THE LAST OF THE GREAT THUNDERSTORM WARNINGS OUT 1/29 VIA FLEMISH EYE (CAN) + FAT CAT RECORDS (USA)

The single started as an Oggy Film Song. A skeletal version of the song had been in the Besnard vault for several years after we initially rejected it for a film soundtrack. It went through a couple drafts before we tore it apart, rejiggered some parts and resurrected it to its new form. The song is an ode to logic and intuition and being able to learn from the past.

In making The Besnard Lakes Are The Last of the Great Thunderstorm Warnings, The Besnard Lakes dispensed with a timeline and instead took all the time they needed  to conceive, compose, record and mix the album.  Some of its songs are old, resurrected from demos cast aside years ago. Others were literally woodshedded in the cabin behind Lasek and Goreas’s “Rigaud Ranch” – invented and reinvented, relishing this rougher sound. Some of that distortion makes its way into the final mix: an incandescent crackle that had receded from the Besnards‘ more recent output.
