Modern Charms (CLU213)
“Self Titled” (LP)
Modern Charms are a trio formed in San Francisco, California, with geographical tendrils spreading outward to the Pacific Northwest, and far-reaching aesthetic roots in dream pop and blissed-out fuzz rock. Their debut recording glides through six tracks of gorgeous guitar damage and crystalline female melodies, soaked in the grey marine layers of Ocean Beach in San Francisco where much of this record was composed, two streets back in a suburban model home. Modern Charms temper atmospherics with confidence and clarity to sweetly excoriate your eardrums.
