The last two years have been very, very interesting for the Pittsburgh's most loved sons, Modey Lemon. After signing with Mute Records in the UK and opening for Dinosaur Jr. at San Francisco's granddaddy of all venues, The Fillmore, the band took some time off to regroup and work on new material. The result is Season of Sweets.  With one foot in the sci-fi darkness of their last record, Curious City, one foot in their past angst-ridden garage wreckage, and one foot in the kautrock brilliance of the German Frontier (what, three feet?), Season of Sweets is a fuzzed-out, driving masterpiece with catchy hooks beaten to death by guitar/synth mayhem. Driven by drummer extraordinaire Paul Quattrone, the songs twist and turn through the imagery and dark rock that has made Modey Lemon famous. Jason Kirker (engineer as well as band member) uses various keyboards, Moog synthesizers, and other instruments to flesh out the sound. At the heart of this album is the energy and mysticism of singer Phil Boyd. As primitive as they are futuristic, Modey Lemon recreates the present, molecule by molecule, every second of every breath.  "Modey Lemon [is] a perfectly capable band with obvious influences, attacking proto-punk and garage rock with aplomb, ability, and a glint of self-awareness." --Pitchfork   "A face-melting beast machinery soundtrack. Like Suicide, the band." --Arthur Magazine
