Modern Diet

Modern Diet plays Shea Stadium on 07.26

New York band, Modern Diet, certainly stays to true to their name, offering a modern mesh of indie pop and soul with some jazz undertones. Upbeat single, “Echo Parade” (from this year's debut LP MD So Far) comes full circle as it begins calmly, presumably describing the uncertainty of love in the summertime, and builds up as the singer gets to the point, saying, “let’s slip and slide and sleep together again.”  The song takes a turn with instrumental focus, questioning the same cycle and repetition of love, and finishes in the calm way it started. Be sure to catch the band on at Shea Stadium on July 26th with Roofer’s Union, Special Guest and Del Water Gap. - Madeleine Grossman


From The Deli NYC's submissions: Modern Diet

Add Modern Diet to your collection of well-named bands. There's a number of ways to listen to this group, and all of them result in well-balanced aural meals. On the one, they are what happens to rock n' roll when it cross-pollinates with R&B. Sort of like The Dismemberment Plan if they went to more Phish concerts. But it's also a confessional of the most intimate order, cutting deep to the bone of what singer Jake Cheriff is concerned with. From the state of his bedroom ('Modern Diet'), to getting unexpectedly lost ('Lazy Beat'), their record 'Commuter EP' shows you all sides of this diverse three piece, from pain to joy, to fret-tapping guitar solos.

See it all come together when they play at Muchmores on December 6th. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets).
