“Moon Queen” by Slow Down Molasses

Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day' is "Moon Queen" by Slow Down Molasses

Slow Down Molasses have shared their new single “Moon Queen” off their forthcoming third album 100% Sunshine out September 2 on Noyes Records. The Canadian band hail from the prairies of Saskatchewan.

In past years Slow Down Molasses felt more like a loose collective than a band, with various friends and peers chipping in to help singer/guitarist Tyson McShane. That has changed with 100% Sunshine, as the musicians who toured behind 2015’s Burnt Black Cars also play on the new record (McShane is joined by drummer Jordan Kurtz, bassist Chris Morin, guitarist/keyboardist Aaron Scholz, guitarist Levi Soulodre and keyboardist/singer Jeanette Stewart). The album was produced by Chad Munson and mixed in Glasgow by Tony Doogan (best known for his work with Mogwai and Belle & Sebastian.)
