FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD: Somewhere in the two thousand-mile-journey between the capital of Saskatchewan and downtown Montreal exists a new body of music called The Soft Province. It's where the two musical minds of longtime friends (and Besnard Lakes co-founders) Jace Lasek and Michael Gardiner met to explore and draw the new borders that make up the 45 atmospheric minutes of their album, also called "The Soft Province". There is a certain majesty to the melody. It's in the dusky album's air. It's in the earthy ten-track formation. And most importantly, it's in the songs. Download "One Was a Lie" at:
