An album hint

Our much missed friend and fifth Modeen, Fen Ikner, now of Brooklyn, has been bending his vast mental and musical powers to the task of mastering the new (as-yet-unnamed) Modeens album. Still some sonic details to tweak, but hot damn, it’s sounding mighty fine! So when will you fine folks get to hear it? Well, we still have a few steps to go: like naming the album!

But in the meantime, we’ll be leaking a few hints about the album, just to make you go hmmmm?

First up: a list of extra sounds! In addition to the vocals, guitars, keyboards, harmonica and drums you’ve come to know and love from The Modeens, you’ll also get these extra instruments and other sounds AT NO EXTRA CHARGE:

  • cowbell
  • banjo
  • a jet plane
  • a lonesome train
  • dual saxophones
  • beer bottles
  • beer cans
  • drunken shouting
  • scratchy vinyl
  • dramatic recitation
  • more cowbell

Stay tuned for more hints in the next missive!

Rock n roll stargazing at Sky Bar

Saturday night we’re headed back to the solar-powered, astronomy-themed funtime place known as Sky Bar. There’ll be deep space telescopes, there’ll be monitors of heavenly bodies, and there’ll be some much-talked-about hot toddies (hic).  Oh, and some rock and roll by The Modeens and old soul rock folkers, Laches. Again, this Saturday from 10pm to 1am with no cover. Come on out and boogie down with us on Fourth Ave!
