Modey Lemon - Season Of Sweets
Modey Lemon play stoner rock with heart and head, whose jams are epic yet tight, the riffs more ringing that sludgy. "Season of Sweets" is their best yet, with all their cylinders refined and well-oiled. A perfect spring release, just in time for shirts-off and tops down. Benevolent blissful yet raw riffage is at work on "The Peacock's Eye." Ditto tunes that both smoke and enlighten like "Become a Monk", "Sacred Place" and "Live Like Kids." This Pittsburgh trio lead by guitarist Phil Boyd
More so than most stoner bands, Modey Lemon dust their metal with humor and good vibes, many of which do not seem to come out of a bong. "Season of Sweets" is their best yet, not because they have sharpened or polished their sound, but because they have had more fun exploring a lot of colors and sonic power that was already there. Current tour diaries on their website detail the long slow path to their current roost in Austin, where they are shredding up SXSW quite nicely.
