So the first thing I see on Modern Skirts – All of Us in Our Night is some big name producers in the indie rock game, big fucking deal that won’t sway me and sadly neither did Modern Skirts. I remember when Shins fever took over shortly after Garden State came out and totally rocked skinny pale kids everywhere to their very score.
Honestly, I’m totally over it, but when I have to sit for forty minutes making my head thump to something just seems taken from someone else it makes me feel slimy like I need a shower. Every single song sounds like the one previous to it, I don’t know if this is purposefully but the one and only part about The Shins that I appreciated was the fact that every once in awhile they’d put the fucking hammer down and kill it, Modern Skirts maybe you should take some pointers.
But if you aren’t swayed yet that’s fine you’re probably a huge fan of The Shins and bands like that anyway so go get Modern Skirts and be bored with life for a little while because honestly that’s what you’re gonna get. And let it be known just because you have great producers to produce your music doesn’t mean you’re gonna capable of ever rocking as hard as them and I’m talking to you Mike Mills (R.E.M),I still love you but you gotta stop this!
-I give it a 4/10
