MOD VIGIL: Automatic Remorse: CD

Are you still bumming about the passing of Jay Reatard? Have no fear; Australia’s Mod Vigil is here to help. Reminiscent of a lot of bands on In The Red Records, the distorted vocals remind me of Reatard’s work from Blood Visions while the music has more of a jangly guitar punk sound, something along the line of Toys That Kill. The sound isn’t the most original thing in the world, but it’s catchy and slightly dirty while retaining a pop sound. Many Razorcake readers will no doubt find something here to enjoy. –Kurt Morris (modvigil.bandcamp.com)
