Slow Down, Molasses reminds me of a mix of Broken Social Scene and the Arcade Fire with a hint of prairie country mixed it. All appropriate of course as they are from Saskatchewan. They will be releasing a new album, Walk into the Sea on March 15, 2011. I’ve got my first sneak peek and I can tell you it’s chocked full of effortless emotion. You’ll get trapped in a wall of sound and instruments whether it’s an indie-pop track or one with some shoegaze thrown in. Each instrument or sound always has a purpose emotionally and tugs your heart strings just as much as the vocals do. Take a listen to their first single off the album Feathers.
