SOTD 1.8.10

Featuring the shoegazey vocals of Olga Goreas backed by Beach Boys-esque harmonies, The Besnard Lakes' "Albatross" is like getting your head stuck in a fishbowl a la "No Surprises" and then being suspended for four minutes and forty-two seconds in that moment of euphoria straddling asphyxiation and unconsciousness. It's the auditory handshake of My Bloody Valentine and Yeasayer. Be sure to check out the band's third LP, The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night, when it's released by Jagjaguwar on March 9.
