Morning Hype! The Sadies

Probably Canada's most underrated band, The Sadies have a new album coming out next week titled "Internal Sounds" and judging by the first single "The First Five Minutes" they're taking their signature alt-country sound into some serious psychedelic territory. The full album is streaming over at Exclaim right now and I've got said single embedded below for repeat listening, along with fall Canadian tour dates for what are always fantastic performances. No word on U.S. dates yet. Now back to my regularly scheduled house hunting duties. Ugh.... [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/97456673" width="100%" height="166" iframe="true" /]
