It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Saskatoon indie-rockers Slow Down Molasses. In fact, it’s been over 5 years since the band dropped 100% Sunshine on the masses. The wait is over with a brand new single this week.
The track was produced by Alaska B of Yamantaka Sonic Titan and mastered by Ryan Morey (Suuns, Besnard Lakes, Big Brave). Now, it’s time for you to take a listen.
Listen to Street Haunting in the embed below and keep it locked to their socials for more. This won’t be the last time we hear from this bunch in 2021.
If you’re not familiar with ambient post-rock outfit MIMICO, you really should be. The band, who borrow their name from a Toronto suburb, are set to drop a new EP next month. Recently, they released the first single, and we can’t get enough of this thing.

Toronto instrumental post-rock outfit Animatist have come a long way since we first came across the band way back in 2010. The 4-piece are set to release their latest effort, Inverted on July 3rd and let’s just say, you’re in for something very special.

Dabda are a Korean “pastel psychedelic” outfit that hail from the capital of the south, Seoul. Their latest effort came to our attention just yesterday and it feels like it’s been on repeat ever since. Although the album is sung in their native tongue and we can’t understand it, the music will do just fine for us any day of the week.
Check out But, All The Shining Things Are below and be prepared for a musical journey you won’t soon forget; some of our favourite tracks include, Playing Along, Journey and Polydream.
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Geoff Barrow’s Portishead side-project Beak> but the band is back with a mesmerizing new single and EP featuring a bunch of live cuts. We can’t seem to get enough of the title track, Wulfstan, and we thought you should know about it.
“In an age where clergy in general and Bishops in particular could enjoy the good life, Wulfstan was something of a social campaigner. It’s said he once invited a host of civic dignitaries to a banquet and then turned up with hundreds of poor people, and insisted that the nobles serve them. He also had a daily ritual of washing the feet of poor people. He also campaigned vigorously against the slave trade based in the city of Bristol. At the time people who could not pay their debts were being sold into slavery in Ireland. Wulfstan spent time in Bristol, preached sermons attacking slavery and eventually slaves held captive in Bristol were released. At the time slavery wasn’t considered immoral, so his stand was a brave one.”
