The Sadies return with their new album Internal Sounds, available in stores and online September 17th on the Outside Music label.
FESTIVAL SHOWS THROUGHOUT SUMMER, NEW FALL TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED, STREAM THE LEAD TRACK “THE FIRST 5 MINUTES” HERE
Consisting of brothers Dallas and Travis Good, drummer Mike Belitsky and upright bassist Sean Dean, The Sadies’ inspired culmination of psychedelia, country and western and instrumental rock has made them the preeminent torchbearers of cosmic Canadiana music.
Internal Sounds was recorded in Toronto. Though Gary Louris was an integral part in making the album, it was produced by Dallas Good. ”There was a conscious effort to deliver a finished product that wouldn’t suffer from a deadline or budget. We recorded this record over a span of a year, in session for twenty plus days. By the end, we’d spent every dime we had and used up every favour. There is usually a sense of immediacy to our records, maybe because we make a lot of them. I didn’t want that this time” says Good.
This time, Peter J. Moore was enlisted to mix with The Sadies, a first for them. Internal Sounds also welcomes Canadian legend Buffy Sainte-Marie who contributes her haunting voice to the closing track “We Are Circling”.
The Sadies continue working to make a greater live show and better albums, integrity intact. Internal Sounds is The Sadies continuing to grow, and getting better with each step.

The Sadies, Internal Sounds out September 17
Montreal‘s Folly & the Hunter will release Tragic Care, their second album and first for the Outside Music Label on April 16th. Having recently toured with fellow Montrealers Half Moon Run, the band will return to the road in early May supporting label mate Aidan Knight in a tour that will take them through Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes.
Tragic Care was recorded at Breakglass Studios with Dave Smith and Jace Lasek (The Besnard Lakes). “The recording process with Dave and Jace was short and intense” says lead singer Nick Vallee; “We had 12 days to record and mix the whole thing, but we had written all the parts in advance so we were ready for it. Dave was an inspiring person to record with because his approach was so calm, and his experience aided us in making the best decisions when inevitable complications arose. Jace became involved when it was time to mix. The album was mixed on their giant SSL console, which Jace mastered beautifully. Jace’s mixing style took the sound of the album to a new level and his willingness to experiment made the final mix even better than expected”
The band, Nick Vallee, Laurie Torres, and Christopher Fox are from different parts of the world (Vallee from BC, Fox from Sussex England, Torres is a native of Quebec of Haitian/Spanish heritage) are all bilingual. To honour the language of the province they all call home, they recorded “Hiver Mile-End” the Arianne Moffat song from her album Tous les sens. The song is the bonus track on the iTunes version of the album.
