The Middle Coast ‘The Making Of: The Middle Coast’ (album stream)

The Middle Coast delivered a video for "Paycheck" back in the fall, and now the Manitoba trio are ready to unveil their complete debut album — and Exclaim! is giving you an exclusive advance listen.
 
The Making Of: The Middle Coast is the culmination years hard work and friendship. The bandmates have been playing together since they were 16 years old, but despite a few attempts at recording, the group "never really came up with something that totally settled for us."
 
With The Making Of, the three-piece have created a mix pop, indie rock and yacht rock tunes that they're "really proud " and fully intend to "tour it until everyone hates it."
 
Aside from the previously shared "Paycheck," which was recorded with Howard Redekopp and Murray Pulver, the Middle Coast self-produced and engineered the album, which is set to be self-released on April 14.
