ARTIST / BAND: Modern Skirts
SONG (MP3): "DUI" / Modern Skirts -- "Rebecca St. Claire" / "Happy 81" / "Bumper Car"
ALBUM: Happy 81
FILE UNDER: Alternative / Indie / Pop
INFO: Modern Skirts’ Happy 81 EP marks a stark contrast to their previous records. The band flexed its pop muscle on the debut record, Catalogue of Generous Men, and their sophomore effort, All Of Us In Our Night, found the band starting to push its own boundaries. The Happy 81 EP and the forthcoming full length record (tentatively scheduled for a November 9th release date) both have their origins in singer Jay Gulley’s bedroom four track cassette recordings. Through the years, while Modern Skirts was touring and recording their studio albums, hundreds of cassette demos were being recorded in the off time. These songs were purely for enjoyment, never to be heard by anyone outside of the band. This is a rare treat. A peak into the fetal stages of many of the songs that will see their finished versions on the soon to be released full length. read more from the source...
