Molasses Jones

Video Premiere: "Smoke Screens" by Molasses Jones

Once again I have the priviledge of unveiling a new video from Boston's Molasses Jones, and once again I am extremely impressed by the tunes from these three guys. I was initially drawn-in by the unique location, a tunnel beneath the Eliot Bridge in Cambridge, MA. I enjoyed the stripped-down live performance, complete with cyclists interrupting the first few seconds of filming. 

"Smoke Screens" has a warm, low-down blues swing, but polished enough to sway more to the pop side of the spectrum. Perhaps most impressive about the whole thing is Cory Fein's playing--drums and harmonica at the same time is complex business.
Enough of my mindless comentary--click the image below and watch for yourselves.

Molasses Jones' debut album is due out in the fall. Until then, check out their Facebook page for band updates.

Deli Video Premiere: Get "Hot & Heavy" with Molasses Jones' New Video

Boston-area blues rockers Molasses Jones have released a new video into the vastness of the Internet and if you know what’s good for you, you’ll watch it, listen to it, and tell all your friends about it. Shot in-studio at Ugly Duck Recording Studios in Allston during the recording of their new single, “Hot & Heavy”, the production quality of both the song and video are extremely well-done. Carried by a ridiculously catchy main riff and strong, smooth vocals from lead singer John Zapato, this song is the perfect soundtrack for a warm-weather BBQ, lounging in your backyard, or cruisin’ down the highway to nowhere in particular.
