SLOW DOWN MOLASSES (CA)
Slow Down Molasses (CA) confronting bristling anxious energy with highly-pronounced pop edges, Slow Down Molasses of Saskatoon, Sask. Canada has never been shy about traversing shifting sonic territories. And on their latest LP, entitled Minor Deaths, the four-piece plunge deep into delay trails and feedback decay with a sound steeped in existential dread and simmering guitar rock post-punk sunshine. Easily their most concise and devastating work yet, Minor Deaths is a suite of eight songs that make controlled swerves into melodic indie rock landscapes while paying homage to the tightly-wound nervousness of post-punk unease.
