Portland, OR’s Modern Kin evolved from the folk-rock ashes of Drew Grow and the Pastors’ Wives, emerging with a leaner and more urgent sound. Still centered around Grow’s ardent wail, this power trio celebrates the primitive thrill of being loud when you are expected to be quiet, exploding into heady and tilted harmonies that scrape around rowdy guitars and exploring the instinctual, essential connection music can make between us. The band’s first album is also the debut of Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney, Quasi, Wild Flag) as a producer.
