Modern Skirts showed up on the music landscape in 2005 with a piano-heavy focus and a spot on Paste Magazine’s 50 Best Albums of 2005 with Catalogue of Generous Men.
The band just put out their third full-length in which they turned down the pianos and brought up the guitar. Gramahawk has dark and gritty subjects while still keeping the catchy hooks and (moderate) piano that were featured in the band’s first two efforts.
The band self-produced the album in New Orleans, and you can hear a song off of the album right here.
Listen to “Happy 81”
