Jace Lasek, songwriter/producer/and co-founder of The Besnard Lakes, has a new side project called The Soft Province with long time friend and collaborator Michael Gardiner. The duo is releasing a self-titled album this week on Three Ring Records after recording it in spurts across Canada over the past few years. The smeared melodies and blurry shoegaze of “One Was A Lie” expands on The Besnard Lakes’ way with epic song structures by injecting a bit more of a pop sound into the song’s sweeping arrangement. It’s the best kind of first listen – full of mystery and promise.
