Weekly RecommNeds | Rose Windows And Besnard Lakes

If you’re still catching up or just looking for some good new music discoveries, all of my 2013 RecommNeds can be found in a single updated-weekly Spotify playlist here: RecommNeds 2013. Enjoy!

Rose Windows - The Sun Dogs



One of the great new discoveries of 2013 that I’m super excited about is Rose Windows whose debut album is a revelatory mash up of sound and styles. Heavy-duty rock and roll mixes with softer beautiful moments and prog-y explorations. There’s a little bit of Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter and a little bit of Portugal. The Man in there, but mostly a whole lotta awesome. This is an album in the original sense, a complete set of take-you-away songs that are meant to be heard one after another. Get ahead of the curve and get involved with The Sun Dogs.

The Besnard Lakes: Until In Excess, Imperceptible UFO




If two points define a line, then the Besnard Lakes’ new album seems to sit at the exact midpoint of the line defined by Broken Social Scene and Gabriel-era Genesis. Filled with beautiful soundscapes, haunting melodies, and some explosive post-rock moments, Until In Excess is one wonderfully patient six-minute track after another.
