REVIEW: Modernos - #1 digital EP (self-released)

Part power-pop, part shoe-gaze, part indie rock, part cali-summer-fun-music...Modernos out of Lisbon, Portugal have a sound that is sometimes sensitive, sometimes tough, undeniably catchy and usually pretty fun.  The sparse three-piece arrangements lurch forward and then suddenly burst forth from their sonic wave curls and coast all the way to Rock-a-way Beach.  While the overall approach is different their melodic/harmonic sensibility sometimes reminds me of Dungen.  Tre gnar, boys.  Get it here.
