Gareth Liddiard said it best when he described MOD CON as occupying a mysterious territory somewhere @between the Bangles and Black Flag.@ The trails that MOD CON / Erica Dunn (guitar, vocals), Sara Retallick (bass), and Raquel Solier (drums) / take us down on Modern Convenience are thick with a wasteland of souls, social politics, ethical change and experimentation. Recorded over the Easter weekend in 2017 with Gareth Liddiard (The Drones& T.F.S) at his home in the Goulburn Valley, Modern Convenience is a compelling debut record, which documents the bands creative alchemy and unique approach to song writing. @The isolated rural backdrop provided a perfect combination of clear/cut focus and cabin fever to get the job done,@ explains Dunn. Noisy, subversively catchy and rhythmically sophisticated, opening cut, @Scorpio@ sets the tone for Modern Convenience. @Submit@ retains the urgency, bite and the bristling, shard/syncopated rhythm hooks. @Neighbourhood@ continues with themes of introspection and menace. While anthems of personal resilience contain as much raw humanity as they do a savvy grasp of the impossible loneliness of the times, especially apparent in @Kidney Auction Blues.@ @Get in Front of Me, Satan@ is jagged, but woozy. Tender, but aggressive. All the time, angular guitar solos, duo vocals and syncopated rhythms hold tight to Modern Convenience-s core. These are carnivorous stories, with pangs of sadness and joy.
