We are Ryan Saul, Dan Haywood, Dustin Crowson, Ezra Snyder

Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Chuck Goodwin at Sinik Sound.
We recorded in the comfort of Chuck's home studio. We drank his Tequila and he only told us to "Shut the FUCK UP!" three times a night. Much love and respect for this man. A legend and a staunch professional.

Album art by Jacob Garvin a.k.a. Sex the Cat

Super Special Thanks to:

Jordan Richardson- thank you sincerely for giving the album your ears when we were fatigued from listening to it 1,000,000 times. Your edit notes were amazing and so so appreciated. Cheers! Go Frogs!

Silas Stewart- who was our drummer for a stint, and helped us write a grip of these songs in a frigid cavernous LUX Storage Unit. Here's to taking long bubble baths, and listening to jazz my friend!

Mitchell Martell- who was our former drummer. He helped us in a pinch and played a series of shows so that we could continue to develop these songs in a live setting. We love ya buddy!

Jeff Strock- who was our bass player for a very short spell at the beginning portion of the this album's writing process. His heart went towards his stand up comedy career, and that's ok. xoxxo always

Dustin Crowson- he's the "fuck it, let's go on tour" temporary bass player. Our shame hole sleeper. Thank you especially for not moving to Seattle. And being the song writer that we've always wanted and needed. You are appreciated greatly. Yes, he's still in the band. He will be forever.

Mike DeJaynes- we Sincerely thank you for always being willing to jump on the drums at Hauf Open Mic to help Dustin and Ryan play and develop these songs. You're a gem of a human and holy crap are you a talented soul.

Emile Millar- for always being honest, even when it hurts.

Elana James and Sally Hope- whom allowed Ryan to house sit when they were out of town...when he decided to live in his camper trailer on the streets of Bozeman. All of the lyrics to these songs were written while pacing around y'alls homes.

Lastly, the BOZEMAN MUSIC SCENE. The incubator that inspires and pushes us to keep playing. The Hauf, Lotus Eaters Productions, Lokken Production, Chicken Jam West, Whistle Pig Music, Cactus Records, The Molly Brown, Harvest Fusion Festival, Groovin' On Festival, CampDaze, DreyFest, The Filling Station, and The Zebra (RIP). Panther Car, The Salamanders, Wrinkles, Chairea, The Magpies, Bull Market, As the Crow Flies, Fuuls, Love Darts, BOYS (RIP), Zenitram, Idaho Green, Hell City Kitty, MOTH, Tiny Plastic Stars, Wire Rider, Rose Gold (RIP), RANGES, Anaconda Vise.

about

Modern Sons

Rooted in garage rock the four piece brings a ubiquitously sonic ambience with crunchy guitars and sophisticated bass lines. Organic structures are not based in a particular style of music, but rooted in the expression of experience and the song itself. They effectively and skillfully uses textural changes of dynamic to step into another sub genre of rock they coin as Psychedelic Post-Punk. ... more

Track Name: Art Party!
Shoot the arrow up and watch it come down, high above the ground
Sharpest points right to the eye like a disagreement you had with your mind
Down the hill I fall again, smash my life into your theoretical web of quick sand
Take a broken beating on the stairs, talking like they know what I need

Can’t even tell if, we’re having fun just yet
It’s an art party baby we get wine drunk and we jet set

Can't take no more, can take no more, of this autonomous strife has control
What a time, what a place, what an excuse, what a waste of your freedom
And shoot the arrow up and watch it come down, high above the ground
Sharpest points right to the eye like a disagreement you had with your mind

Can’t even tell if, you’re having fun just yet
It’s an art party baby we get wine drunk and we jet set
We mix the reds with the greens, add the yellows then we jump and scream
It’s an art party baby, we got lots of places to be

Art Party! Art Party! Art Party!
