Yer Like The Ocean

A band that has been making waves for 3 albums now goes by the name of The Besnard Lakes. Originating from Montreal they were formed in 2003 by husband and wife duo Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas. Their first album Volume 1 came out in 2003 in limited release but was later given a larger release. Both their 2nd and 3rd albums were recorded at Jace Lasek's Breakglass studios. Besides singing the duo also self produced the albums and Jace has produced for Land Of Talk, Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown and Young Galaxy. Second album ...Are The Dark Horse ganered them a Polaris Prize nomination while third album ...Are The Roaring Night earned them yet another nod. Very atmospheric and built upon layers of sound, the band has carved out their own niche in an already talented pool of musicians in Montreal. Etheral vocals sung in Jace Lasek's trademark falsetto lull the senses and allow the music to flow through. Take a dip:

"For Agent 13"



"And You Lied To Me"


"Like The Ocean, Like The Innocent Pt 1 & 2"

"And This Is What We Call Progress"
