XRAY.FM Present Modern Kin and The Ghost Ease 11.20





XRAY.FM Present Modern Kin and The Ghost Ease 11.20

XRAY.FM’s broadcast signal is warming up the city, one receiver at a time. On top of the 168 hours of local unreceptive air play, they’ve put together a fantastic show this Thursday at Mississippi Studios. Headlining the show is Portland’s Modern Kin, along with The Ghost Ease and Kithkin

Modern Kin play lush textured rock and roll music. Their excellent self-titled record shows serious song writing chops with arrangements that call to mind Electric Light Orchestra and Tom Waits. Their live sound provides a raw stripped down Replacements meet R.E.M vibe that is entirely fresh and a sound all of their own. Below, check their live version of “Abandon" from the fine folks over at Banana Stand Media to see for yourself.

If you're not familiar with The Ghost Ease you must have just moved here. They are one of Portland's most unique adventurous bands who would be right at home on a mix tape with Television, Pavement and Patty Smith. Seattle’s Kithkin will open the night with their brilliant self-described “tree punk” and join Modern Kin for the The Great PNW 'Kin Tour of 2014.
