Of This Moment - The Besnard Lakes

At first I was under the impression this was just another Canadian supergroup, consisting of a girl who sings with Broken Social Scene and the guy who recorded Wolf Parade, or something like that. I swear I saw them open for the Unicorns. Regardless, my esteemed Stylus colleague Derek Miller wrote this informed review of Besnard Lakes are the Dark Horse, I read it, bought it, and never looked back. This is epic stuff, congesting Pet Sounds harmonies, My Morning Jacket's big sky psych, and tragic muckraking into thick, enthralling songs.Try "And You Lied to Me" to begin your voyage. I can't seem to turn this up loud enough. Playing more than once in Austin.
