MODESSA: May 13, 1999 – May 31, 1999: 7”

This EP conjured up a feeling of being a lot younger and reading HeartattaCk and there was always at least one interview with a band that wasn’t aggressive, and I just could never figure out how that band fit into this new, intentionally cryptic world I was trying desperately to figure out. Modessa is lo-fi and noodley with stompy percussions. An aromatic K Records flavor whiffs through the house. And as much as I can recognize it as music, and can visualize three people working together to create it, nearly two decades later I’m still unsure what to make of stuff like this. –Daryl (Jabs)
