Modcast #394: Give Yourself A Hand

So this is it, this is where the modcast jumps the shark ... again. All the music in the world and I'm busy making a jerk off mix. Hey, I just made it, you're listening to it. I hope. It wasn't the easiest modcast to put together either. Do you know how many songs there about self pleasure? It was hard to narrow it down. But I did. So get comfortable and listen in.

Modcast #393: Caution Gerbils May Explode If Kicked

Action packed show this week, so hot it could explode into flames at any time.

Here we are turning the corner from summer to fall and heading into the back stretch of 2017 aimed at the finish line. There's about a dozen weeks left in the year and I've got seven modcasts to pump out in order to hit show #400. I was hoping to do that this year, but it's going to be tight. But I pumped one out for you this week that has lots of cool new music, as well as some ... er, shall we just call them more experienced sounds?

The Corner Laughers vocalist debuts a soft and sensational new solo album



The Corner Laughers have become one of my favorite groups over the past decade. It's surprising because I'm not to fond of folk music, and they have folksiness in spades. Rather than folksy though I've always heard a sort of twee, poppishness to their songs. Vocalist Karla Kane has always ridden atop the Laughers music effortlessly, an integral part of the whole. When I realized the latest release was a solo project I wondered how that would sound. And now I know. It sounds great. Again surprising to me is my enjoyment of what can only be called a folk album. Kane's voice is strong and striking as always, reminding a little bit of She & Him's Zoey Daschenal not because they sound so similar but because they have this sort of ethereal quality that belies an elegant and underlying strength. They both share a softness around the edges that works especially well here for Kane when coupled with the thought provoking lyrics on songs like All Aboard, the feminist folk of Don't Hush Darling, and the album's title track King's Daughters Home For Incurables. Another striking song is Lilac Line, with Kane's customary ukulele twanging along, it boasts a catchy chorus and builds to what amounts to a crescendo for an otherwise subtly understated album. And it reminded me just a bit of the Beautiful South, which is a good thing in my book. Overall this is a strong and enjoyable solo debut, and maybe will inspire me to expand my listening boundaries even a bit further. I'm not going to stop hoping for another right proper album from the Laughers as a whole though!

Karla Kane's King's Daughters Home For Incurables will be released October 6th and you can order it here.
