JFH Indie Inspection Review



Modern Dissent
Rise Me Up With You

Street Date: 2008
Style: Alt Rock
Artist Website: ModernDissent.com


Modern Dissent is a rock band out of the great northwest. This five piece from has been together since mid-2007, and released their first record in July of 2008. The record drips with a slightly dated, grunge/alternative production that is more understandable coming from a Spokane, Washington band. It is certainly forgivable, though I suspect that their live show would be more varied in sound than on this release. I hear The Blues trying to slip through on occasion, but the production muddles it into something more generic, into a trip to mid-nineties sounds of Poor Old Lu or Model Engine. The listener can still find a few bright spots, so hopefully their next release picks up on the promise that is shown in songs like "The Highest, Holy Name."
