9/10 Brian Staff review, 04 February 2010
Not heard from The Besnard Lakes for a while. Here they come with their new 12", 'Albatross'. It's a shoegazey strut down memory lane that has a wonderfully spacious production, a sort of beefed-up & heavily tremeloed Mazzy Star feel. Fans of early Medicine, A Sad Day For Puppets & A Sunny Day in Glasgow should also love this. I like the way it bursts into chiming, stargazing college rock at the end, all in all a powerful little epic! The flip is a slice of evocative, atmosphere-laden downtempo; a meandering, smoky number that kind of reminds me of mid-period Field Mice, I think its the slightly cosmic electronic dabbling, the tender, conversational bassline & the ricocheting ethereal touches. The piano gives it a lovely Spiritualized edge too. A cracking double header!!
