Jace Lasek of Besnard Lakes on How Carl Sagan Changed His Life

Since 2003, Montreal's The Besnard Lakes have produced a catalogue of some of the finest psychedelic rock out there. Led by the husband-wife team of Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas, the group released their stunning Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO earlier this year as the follow-up to 2010's excellent The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night. We could continue casting superlatives onto the group, but others have done that in droves, as evidenced by the amount of Polaris Prize nominations their albums have received.

The Besnard Lakes bring their moody and majestic groove-thing to Dada Saturday night, and we spoke to Lasek about Carl Sagan, working and living with his wife and funny relatives.
