Last album was one of the best albums of the decade for me. The new album should have come on Monday, but it still hasn't arrived yet. Really looking forward to seeing them live at Cargo.
but their last one reminds me a lot of Low. Seeing them in Leeds in a couple of weeks so I'll have to check out the stream that manish has kindly linked us to.
But I agree that ...Dark Horse is one of my favourite albums ever. Planning to get the new one quite soon, I'm very excited.
and Volume 1. Epic and slightly wonky masterpieces, like Low might sound if they properly turned it up. They seem to be obsessed with espionage in the lyrics too.
I'm finding the new one really disappointing at the moment. It just doesn't seem to be as special. Dark Horse didn't hit me straight away though so I'm hoping it'll be a grower.

if u fancy it like?!!!
And brilliant live too
I have to say it's a great album.

Ya big jessie! I loved the last record and so did loads round here. Unless you're saying listen to the leak in which case (wink!) I get ya.
Even though, start a new Besnard Lakes thread or I'll do it saying you're one of them. We'll talk about the high points of the Lakes..
Why you embarrassed? Like 'em too much? I can see how it could happen.
But I may give the Besnard Lakes a listen.
Great records, superb live and super nice people to top it off.
first heard this on a 6music show a couple years ago - still think its their best in honesty. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYIFj5ZkZCU
