Culture Collide Festival: The Besnard Lakes (Canada) at the Echoplex 10-4-10

Well, there's no denying they were loud. They presented delicious noise at the end of some of their songs. They also sang few beautiful psychedelic harmonies. Nothing outrageously catchy, but definitely beautiful as it passed through the hall.

They dwelt in an ambient drone-rocking distortion with varying textures. They seemed well pleased to float on dissonant clouds of sound for long stretches of time. The more I think about it, the cooler it gets that they do their own thing.

In some ways, the volume killed off some of the band's natural charm. It would have been nice to hear some of their flute stuff in the live set, but it's not always practical to get a full sound including all instruments from a touring band.
