Get Lost in the Music on Friday Night

May 27th, 2010

Husband Jace Lasek and wife Olga Goreas are music people. They own the Montreal recording studio Breakglass Studios and formed the Besnard Lakes (above, playing “And This Is What We Call Progress”) in 2003. The couple self-recorded the majority of Volume 1, the band’s debut album, at their studio when time allowed, and then self-released it. They later added band members and a second album, The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse, in 2007. Their third disc, The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night, released in March, is filled with slow-building, psychedelic-tinged music. “We want the listener to get lost in the song. It needs time to get under your skin, so it can’t be three minutes long,” said Lasek. “I don’t do drugs, but this is a drug record.” Find out for yourself when the Besnard Lakes (with Land of Talk and Holopaw) play The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night.
