The Besnard Lakes Tour US, Make the Sound of Dreams

Last night I dreamed about watching the Besnard Lakes perform a live concert in a giant underground cave, stalactites dripping from the ceiling. It's not surprising, I guess, since their towering, cinematic new album The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night has been on repeat in my iPod since its release last month. The album sounds even better (and has a cooler title) than it did when I first heard some of it live last October.

Make sure you check out the Besnard Lakes as they embark on an epic tour across the US later this month. Not sure if any underground cave dates are scheduled, but they seem to be playing just about everywhere else. (Here's hoping they remember the fog machine this time.)

And finally, if you haven't yet enjoyed the bittersweet, soaring drone of their new single "Albatross", well, you've been missing out. Click here for the MP3.
