THE BESNARD LAKES (London Islington Assembly Halls, 05/04/16) 

The Besnard Lakes are one of the most underrated bands of our generation, and the fact Islington Assembly Hall was only two-thirds full is a damning indictment on everyone who wasn't there. That said, although the 13-piece setup was sublime at times (especially during the intro to "Chicago Train"), the mix was off throughout, meaning their trademark wall-of-sound shoegaziness was far less potent than it deserved to be.
