e heard from Montreal’s The Besnard Lakes, but 2021 promises to be their year. In January, they release their latest album The Besnard Lakes Are The Last Of The Great Thunderstorm Warnings. They earned their reputation by their mixture of heavy atmospherics tempered with poetic lyrics and frontman Jace Lasek‘s melancholic singing. The Last Of… promises to be a seventy-minute album about death and loss. The first single, “Raindrops,” pays homage to one of Lasek’s inspirations, the late Talk Talk frontman Mark Hollis. “Raindrops,” naturally, is a thing of beauty, and leaves us anxious to hear more.
