Modern Man, Troubadour Dali CL Recommends

When: Sun., June 17 2012
Price: $5
MODERN MAN This Greenville, S.C.-based act paints in shades of shoegaze, post punk and post rock, tilting more guitar squall than ebb-and-crest, though both elements comfortably co-exist on their palette. Sure, these days those tags apply to scores of young bands basking in their discovery of MBV-guitar distortion. But what sets Modern Man apart is the sinister undertow of Joy Division pulse-and-thrum — and Allen Glenn’s ghostly, echo chamber vocals — that dial up the tension to a pleasurable frisson. But by all means, find out if their debut full-length, EYES NO, is your cuppa by heading over to their pay-what-you-want Bandcamp page. With Troubador Dali, a name neither catchy nor clever.
