Montreal psychedelic rockers play Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
This Montreal quartet’s third album, The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night, has been shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize, which is Canada’s equivalent to the Mercury, and are up against the likes of Broken Social Scene, Caribou and Owen Pallett. Their woozy, gauzy dream pop adds a celestial, alt-rock spin on the falsetto charms of The Beach Boys or the pulsing rock beats of Fleetwood Mac.
Sneaky Pete’s , 08444 999 990, 17 Aug, 7pm, £9. Part of The Edge Festival.
