CD Review: The Besnard Lakes "A Coliseum Complex"

Like a foghorn in the mist, co-leader Olga Goreas’ tasty lines are landmarks in the psychedelic/shoegaze swirl of Museum.
By E.E. Bradman ,

Like a foghorn in the mist, co-leader Olga Goreas’ tasty lines are landmarks in the psychedelic/shoegaze swirl of Museum. Unhurried and unmovable, Goreas never plays too much or too little, occupying a space underneath drummer Kevin Laing’s kick drum but always audible alongside her cohorts. Highlights: the grinding ostinato of “Golden Lion,” her distorted and melodic lines underneath “Tungsten 4: The Refugee,” and the way she plays off the vocal line in “Necronomicon.”
