With a great Daytrotter Session under their belts Athens, Georgia’s Modern Skirts have a lot to pleased about. After their 2005 debut release of Catalogue of Generous Men they took to the road for two years, a journey of disillusionment followed. The search for that unique sound was not sat there waiting for them and you have to hand it to them for sticking at it for as long as they have. They took things right back to basics, quite literally. Previous recording procedures were dropped in favour lo-fi tape recordings. From these their inspiration grew and the result was the release of Gramahawk in January 2011. The album allowed them to be re-invented or maybe ‘re-found’ is a better description. It’s all looking and sounding good!
