The Modern Day Saint - CD REVIEW
TENNESSEE ISN'T TOO FAR AWAY - THE MODERN DAY SAINT CD REVIEW
One of the ways Madlins Coffee House keeps you awake, besides the delicious
caffiene, is through giving any music lover a chance to see music performed
from other areas of the country, other hoods so to speak. From one of these
hoods back east, and not the Big Apple for a change, but rather western Massachusetts,
comes THE MODERN DAY SAINT, a mostly Catholic band with Irish elements, again
illustrating the current surge of upcoming young bands with a religious background.
The EP is actually two as one half is MDS and the other a group called SONNY, having guitar lead Joe Urban common to both, but playing bass.
The studio quality engerneering and production sound work capture a good range of technical skill and song writing talents these rockers exhibit live. The sound is full, vibrant, with good layered vocals and one would guess, done in not too many takes. The three songs stand out in quality and depth rather than the usual relationship lyrics. A new full length CD is expected to be released sometime in February from THE MODERN DAY SAINT and my anticipation is high.
