Philly's Modern Baseball are still a few weeks away from the release of their sophomore LP, You're Gonna Miss It all (due out 2/11 via Run for Cover), and after releasing two of its tracks, "Rock Bottom" and "Your Graduation," they've given us a third, "Charlie Black." On an album that goes from bare-bones acoustic songs to upbeat rockers and hits most of the middle ground between the two as well, "Charlie Black" may be the most they rock out. The intro-less song kicks right off with distorted power chords and Brendan Lukens' trademark nasal-voiced lyrical confessions, and it only rises in the chorus with enough "whoa-ohs" to make Japandroids proud. Listen to it here via Fuse and listen to the two previous album cuts below.
