Modern Baseball – ‘Holy Ghost’ Cover

This one is pretty deep...

A record equally split between Brendan Lukens’ reflections on addiction and anxiety, and Jake Ewald’s odes to loss inspired by his grandfather’s passing, Modern Baseball’s third album cuts deeper than the Philly four-piece have dared venture before.

The dweeb-core champs’ songs might as well come with a ‘kick me’ sign pinned to them, but the depth and quality of ‘Holy Ghost’ is an exercise in kicking back and refusing to be defeated. Just listen to the rousing defiance of ‘Just Another Face’ and try not to feel like you can overcome anything the big, bad world might throw at you.
