The Besnard Lakes – ‘And This is What We Call Progress’

Track 151 on The Playlist.

The Besnard Lakes pack their indie rock songs with relentless drones and intense, atmospheric build-up. The greatest selling point of their music is that it makes the touchstones of postrock more accessible than just about any band from the genre, (apart from the stars’ favourites Sigur Rós).

The public is set to vote against a proposed electoral reform today. The Besnard Lakes’ pounding drums might prove to be a cathartic comfort for the liberals during tomorrow’s fallout.
