The Besnard Lakes take you from Saskatchewan to the moon

Montreal's Besnard Lakes perform live from their atmospheric new record, A Coliseum Complex Museum.

The Besnard Lakes have been exploring the outer limits for more than a decade now. Their sound is introspective, atmospheric, and starbound all at once.

Their new album, A Coliseum Complex Museum, adds a dash of 70s pop melody to their signature space rock.

The Montreal band join Shad in studio q to play from their new album and talk about the westward journey to their namesake, Besnard Lake, in northern Saskatchewan.
