Modern Baseball

As discussed, Philly's Modern Baseball are releasing their sophomore LP, You're Gonna Miss It All, on February 11 via Run for Cover (pre-order). You've already heard the first single, "Your Graduation," which showed them graduating (heh) from the endearingly youthful songs of their debut to a slightly more "matured" sound, and that trend continues on the album's newest single, "Rock Bottom." It's as personal as anything on Frightened Rabbit's The Midnight Organ Fight but with the kick of the more rockin' moments of Jimmy Eat World's Bleed American, and like those bands, singer Brendan Lukens has the kind of voice that sticks out among the masses of rock bands doing similar things. "Rock Bottom" makes its premiere in this post, and you can stream it below.

Modern Baseball are also heading out on a previously mentioned tour with The Wonder Years, Defeater, Citizen and Real Friends that hits NYC on April 17 at Best Buy Theater. Tickets for that show are still available.

Song stream below...

Tracks are decent. Super catchy. I don't get how these songs are considered more mature then the "sports" LP. Both of these new songs sound like songs that could of been on "sports". Solid nonetheless.

Sums it up pretty well. Not bad, not great, not different.

^ lol 2:17 deserves that for not pointing out the lack of hits, and how he caught them in an interview getting way off base

sounds just like every other modern baseball song i've ever heard

This really doesn't sound much different than any song on Sports, and I am completely okay with this. I loved Sports, it was one of my top records 2012. Now I'm not saying that a band shouldn't mature or evolve/progress their sound, but what they have right now at this moment is great in my opinion and I hope they never stray too too far from it.

Highline Residences will be accessible via Tiong Bahru MRT. Commuting to the city area is therefore very convenient and the amenities are at your finger tips. It is also right beside Tiong Bahru Plaza and Central Plaza. IMM Jurong as well as Jurong Country Club are also within a short walk.

Tears over beers makes me think of this girl I've sat next to all through high school and it turns out I like her, but she's into meatheads even though they don't pay attention to her at all. Its senior year, and now she secretly hates me (but she's to kind to say so) cause I'm a tool.
