We’re very excited to announce Dinked 77 – the new double album from Montreal-based psych-rock six-piece The Besnard Lakes. The Besnard Lakes are the Last of the Great Thunderstorm Warnings is released on January 29th by Full Time Hobby.
Having split from their label following 2016’s A Coliseum Complex Museum, The Besnard Lakes… finds the band returning to their roots and embracing expansive songs inspired by death and what lays beyond. Over 9 tracks and 72 minutes, The Besnard Lakes create a musical world full of grandeur and beauty, embracing the ethereal but keeping a rough edge brought over from their demos. Inspired by the deaths of Mark Hollis and Prince, as well as frontman Jace Lasek’s own father, The Besnard Lakes… explores the concept of the deathbed as the ultimate psychedelic trip as a long-form suite. Fans of Spiritualized, The Flaming Lips and even Dark Side-era Pink Floyd will love this album of epic proportions!
