What to Do Tonight: Besnard Lakes

It should come as no surprise that Besnard Lakes’ singer and guitarist Jace Lasek made his bones as a producer. Even a cursory listen to the group’s three albums reveals a frontman who’s obsessed with layering, tone, and atmosphere. The Montreal quartet’s songs transport listeners to strange and distance realms, echoing My Bloody Valentine’s shoegazer rock and lavish Pet Sounds pop. But their eerie psych-rock flourishes soon blow you off course. It helps that Lasek and wife Olga Goreas (who also writes for the group) wield powerful, haunting voices that increase the epic scope of the band’s songs. Besnard Lakes, with Land of Talk and Lighthouse & the Whaler perform at 8:30 p.m. at Beachland Ballroom. Tickets: $10 advance, $12 day of show. —Matt Whelihan
