The Besnard Lakes: Albatross


I haven’t even finished collecting my thoughts for 2009 and already I’m certain 2010 is going to blow last year out of the water.

One of the albums I’m most looking forward to in ’10 is the new one from Canadian psych-rockers The Besnard Lakes, who on March 9 will unveil The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night, which already can stake claim to best cover art of the year (see above).

On Wednesday, the band and Jagjaguwar offered the first single from the album, Albatross, which also will be released as a 12-inch single on Feb. 9 with an exclusive b-side, Four Long Lines.

Albatross is predictably spacious and epic, but I get the feeling it’s only a small hint of what’s to come on Are the Roaring Night.
