The Brudenell and Jonny Strangeways are proud to present to you.....A Very Special Joint Headline Show....
Jagjaguwar are thrilled to announce that THE BESNARD LAKES will return to these shores in August.
The Besnard Lakes, the Montreal collective fronted by husband-and-wife duo Olga Goreas and Jace Lasek, will return, crafting a majestic, sprawling vision of guitar bombast and captivating pop experiments.
On March 9th of 2010 (March 8th in the UK), Jagjaguwar released The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night, a twisting chronicle of spies, double agents, novelists and aspiring rock gods turned violent. Loyalty, dishonor, love, and hatred are all seen through the eyes of two spies, communicating through short wave in code and fighting a war that may or may not be real.
The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night was recorded at Lasek's Breakglass Studios with a vintage 1968 Neve germanium mixing console used to record portions of Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti. The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night is a dark bliss-out that folds the eerie guitar epics of the band's breakthrough, The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse, into a wall of affected drones and atmospherics. The toughened immediacy and grit that gives the form a much-needed shove over the cliffs makes for a haunting, provocative swan dive into the crushing tide.
Sleepy Sun is a California band from many Californias. They hail from the rolling oak and sage hills of Sierra Gold Country, The San Francisco Peninsula, where Kesey raged and the Dead were once Warlocks, and the forever-sunshine climes of the Southland. They came togetheryoung and garage strutting in the coastal Northern California crucible of Santa Cruz. And there they birthed the Sleepy sounddead blues shaken alive, razor sharp and ramblin, soul, sonic science and dead-on pop surgery. Wooden, earthy, stratospheric, and swingingCalifornia music of beautiful contrasts for conflicted times.
