Published Jan 15, 2019Jace Lasek of the Besnard Lakes and Stephen Ramsay of Young Galaxy have joined forces for a new project called Light Conductor. Their debut album Sequence One is due out March 8 via Constellation Records.
The project hears Lasek and Ramsay combining elements of ambient electronic music and space rock, with a psychedelic twist. The pair have been working together on modular synth "slow jams" for years, eventually recording a complete album at Lasek's Breakglass Studio in Montreal.
Sequence One opens with "A Bright Resemblance," a sprawling 11-minute track that opens with an eerie X-Files-esque vibe before launching listeners into space and softening the sound — almost giving the effect of floating away from earth.
The final song, meanwhile, features Ramsay's former Young Galaxy counterpart Catherine McCandless on backing vocals.
