LO MOdA

Formed in 2005 by folks from beloved local acts both old-school and new--including Candy Machine, Fascist Fascist, Thank You, and others--the mixed-gender Lo Moda has maintained something of a low-key presence during the recent out-of-town hubbub over Baltimore music. While some homegrown acts seem to play the city's circuit of small clubs and warehouse spaces several times a week, whole months can go by without a Lo Moda gig.

Formed in 2005 by folks from beloved local acts both old-school and new--including Candy Machine, Fascist Fascist, Thank You, and others--the mixed-gender Lo Moda has maintained something of a low-key presence during the recent out-of-town hubbub over Baltimore music. While some homegrown acts seem to play the city's circuit of small clubs and warehouse spaces several times a week, whole months can go by without a Lo Moda gig. This is partly because Lo Moda is a band of grown-ups with grown-up concerns: full-time jobs, kids, the whole real-world works. It's a lot easier to endlessly record and tour when your band is comprised of post-collegiates jacked up on a lack of responsibility.

Thus, it's been two years since Lo Moda dropped its debut long-player, Gospel Store Front, a spectral slice of soul-rock minimalism that City Paper named one of the best local albums of 2006. Released by Creative Capitalism--the label/publishing house/art-prank outlet masterminded by Quinn and various associates, including his wife (and Lo Moda keyboard player) Gillian--the album deliciously mixed slo-mo '60s R&B rhythms, Velvets-style avant-garage guitar, and moody washes of viola and keyboard. It was a retro-fresh change from the spazzy electronic noise, jerky math-rock, and quasi-hippie folk that's sprouted in Baltimore's moist underground rock hotspots in the second half of this decade. « hide
