The Besnard Lakes

The Besnard Lakes

The Besnard Lakes' Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO had its humble beginnings in mid-2011 and was completed over the course of a year. Ever mindful and attentive to the most subtle and nuanced details, founding band members Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas produced, recorded and mixed at the stalwart Breakglass Studios in Montreal. Eventually mastered by the renowned Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound, this fourth album by The Besnard Lakes' features heavyweight additions by Moonface's Spencer Krug and Mike Bigelow, The Barr Brothers' Sarah Page, the always-enchanting Monica Guenter and the return of Fifth String Liberation Singers' Choir.

The story of the album unfolds its introspection on the endurance of the human spirit during prophetic times as told by a spy or two, maybe more. Each of the eight tracks on the album takes off, coasts, and lands smoothly, with a jubilant slowburn of its own momentum for the benefit of the larger picture. The Besnard Lakes create a distinct and dreamy headspace, an enigmatic and somehow familiar placelessness. It happens in such a way that both the close and casual listener find themselves immersed in the generous sonic vision, one moment as timeless as the next.

Street Spirits

Street Spirits started out as the solo project of Todd Heaton (KO, Our Imaginary Friends, PONS). Heaton recorded an E.P. titled "Todd Heaton's Street Spirits" which was released in the spring of 2011. He performed at house shows and small festivals for almost a year as a solo artist. In August of 2012, Musical Family Tree ( content curator Jon Rogers discovered the E.P. and wrote a piece about it for the site. In short order, Todd was asked to play an Indiana new music showcase curated by Musical Family Tree. He agreed to play, and assembled a band to back him live. Todd recruited Christian Taylor (America Owns The Moon), Nick Peoni (Glory Hole Records) his brother Wesley Heaton (Queen Size Twin Air Recording Studio) and his sister Ami Heaton (Our Imaginary Friends) for the first band show. Following the showcase, the project turned into a full on group, and was renamed Street Spirits. A short time after, two new members and a contributor were added to the group. The line-up now includes Chris Fry (Margot and The Nuclear So & So's, The Academy) on drums, Dayton Ray Neely (Shadeland, The Division League) on guitar and contributor Ben Walker (Blood Bank) on drums. Currently Street Spirits is putting the finishing touches on their debut L.P. It is scheduled to be completed later this summer.
