The Besnard Lakes – People of the Sticks

If we could marry Jagjaguwar we most definitely would. The Indiana-based label’s record is virtually spotless; Sharon Van Etten, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Small Black AND The Besnard Lakes. The potent, focused, gorgeous haze of Besnard Lakes has made the Montreal band big favorites among the b3 crew. “People of the Sticks”, the band’s latest from their upcoming Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO LP finds TBL dabbling in slightly more muscular more syncopated rhythm and song structures; a stylistic change the band acquits themselves of quite well.
