The Modern Era
The Modern Era
In a world of millions of bands lost in the rat race, one question remains. "Why should we give a damn about one more sorry ass rock band?" Well friends, here's your answer. After a year long stint in a cold dark basement, members Jack Swagger, Ben Pelowski and Nick Pelowski arose to find a music industry in turmoil. Savage acts of mass music crimes being committed at every radio dial. Is there any hope? Well everyone, one thing is for sure, The Modern Era is not here to save rock and roll, they're here to usher in a new golden age of music by first destroying all filler, one unforgivable top 20 song at a time. We are coming to your town, so get ready, because when we do, you will remember the name.
The Usual Things
The Usual Things
Proudly from Minneapolis, MN and led by singer/songwriter Aaron Shekey (pronounced shee-key), The Usual Things mix power pop melodies with midwestern story telling, reminiscent of their humble roots and big city aspirations. Shekey references his own blue-collar family experiences with relatable ambiguity; tales that push the simple, upbeat melodies of the band into surprisingly darker territory.

Their influences range from the story telling of dirty southern rockers, The Drive-By Truckers, to the more hook driven melodies of early Radiohead, to the straight-forward rock fervor of the Foo Fighters. Their latest album Home Sweet Alone explores the consequences of a failed 10-year relationship that could only be described as the quintessential, All-American high school sweetheartdom.
'It's more of a breaking up record. A break-up record implies that everyone's moved on,' says Shekey. He continues, 'It's dark, brutally honest, and all kinds of sad. I've never been more proud of a record.' While it highlights the softer side of a maturing band, Home Sweet Alone doesn't lose its hooks or its bravado. At once it drifts between acoustic interstitials and full-on telecaster thunder—a turning point in both the band's musicianship and lyrical content. Home Sweet Alone is a cohesive, measured effort. 'Everything's out in the open on this one. My fear is it'll be hard for me, personally, to listen to it in a few years' time... but this record absolutely had to be made. It's the best work we've ever done.'

'Incredible songs and solid musicianship without indie haircuts or too-tight pants. Please God, send more.' -Maximum Ink
