Unique among their furrowed brow peers, The Besnard Lakes are unafraid to marry textured, questing headphone sonics to the honeyed pleasure of radio hits past: the rapture of My Bloody Valentine entwined with the romance of Fleetwood Mac. Imagine dreamy Beach House riding Led Zeppelin dynamics with unabashedly androgynous vocal harmonies.

Channelling their obsessions with the paranormal as well as the dark arts, ‘A Coliseum Complex Museum’ is populated by cryptozoological creatures (‘The Bray Road Beast’, ‘Golden Lion’) while also luxuriating in natural phenomena and beauty (‘The Plain Moon’, ‘Nightingale’).

These themes are sincere yet good-humoured. The album’s title jokily refers to a landmark-heavy road sign spotted on tour in Texas, the varied emotional impulses within reflected by its environmentally warped artwork.

Coloured vinyl format available exclusively to independent retailers.

“‘Until In Excess, Imperceptible UFO’ was ‘criminally underappreciated’” – Under The Radar

“Husband-and-wife bandleaders Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas seem to play their entire band like a guitar – everything here is in heavy sync, rich vocals and drums and distortion all cascading together as if they’d been strummed from the same instrument” – Flood Magazine
