Mod Gun: Mod Gun

Mod Gun Cover Art

All dressed up and no place to shoegaze. That just sounds wrong on so many levels. Can they even see their shoes? No matter, despite appearing as the new poster children for nerd rock, Mod Gun deliver straight ahead shoegaze that spans the range of influences from fuzzed out to lo-fi to power pop. This self-titled debut album, by the Boston based quartet, gives us 11 tracks of catchy songs with their own unique form and no hooks. That's right, no hooks. This band is not afraid to write what they feel and to present it in a genre breaking format.This is not your parent's rock radio drivel. Light and airy to heavy and in your face, this album makes a statement that Mod Gun are to be taken seriously. Stream and download the album for free at the link below. You'll be happy you did.
