Pre-sale online from 18:00 on Saturday, December 5th. *Release date 29th of January, 2021.
New album from kosmiche folk-rock quartet Modern Studies on LTD edition Yellow vinyl. A glorious compendium of haunted disco hallelujahs, mercurial krautrock chorales, cosmic pop adagios and euphoric, resilient, anthems.
‘The Weight of the Sun’ sees principal songwriters Emily Scott and Rob St John further their warm, esoteric field studies with Pete Harvey and Joe Smillie, as previously reconnoitred on ‘Swell To Great’ (2016) and ‘Welcome Strangers’ (2018).
“The exact point where Fairport Convention meet Jim O’Rourke at a remote Scottish railway station.” Tim Burgess
“Their best yet” ★★★★ Record Collector
There is a strange familiarity, and a welcome strangeness, in the quiet alchemy of Modern Studies.
