Besnard Lakes/Turn to Crime/Stems

When: Sat., May 7, 8 p.m. 2016

Headed by husband/wife songwriting team Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas, this six-piece from Montreal regularly draws inspiration for its music from its namesake, a Canadian camping and fishing site. The band was formed after its wedded core returned from a getaway trip to Besnard Lake with demos that would become the band’s earliest recorded material. Throughout its 15-year history, the duo has used that location as annual inspiration for their atmospheric music, which has evolved as the band has expanded to accommodate more members for its most recent releases. On the group’s latest, A Coliseum Complex Museum, the spacey vocal harmonies of Lasek and Goreas are grounded by stringy guitars and epic synth, forming the group’s most balanced and engrossing sound yet.
