First/Last-Modern Man

December 10, 2013

“Sound of light, fleeting darkness, wave of enlightenment. Droning echoes, whirling, driving, pushing, pulling, morphing the atmosphere. Reverberation, saturation, intoxication. Noise bleeds through a cloud of cascading layers until unity is acquired, lost in a sea of sound. Dark and hypnotic, MM’s live performance also carries a lasting effect. The energy shared between the four-piece spills into the crowd as each member’s presence is fiercely intense. Glenn seems possessed, leading the others and the crowd through some sinister labyrinth of distortion.”

Check out the band on Facebook, BandCamp, Twitter, YouTube, SoundCloud, Tumblr and Instagram. Hailing from South Carolina, the band was featured on the Paste 50 States Project and their latest release is the EP, “Small Wave Tapes“. My thanks to Davis Allen Glenn (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Allen. That’s a pretty strong relationship to Pittsburgh you got there, man! Surprised you haven’t got the key to the city yet?
