“Holy Ghost” is Modern Baseball’s best work


Martha Seymour, Campus Editor

Modern Baseball released their third full-length album, “Holy Ghost,” May 13. If you haven’t heard of Modern Baseball, they are an American rock band from Philadelphia, Pa. Their sound has been compared to The Front Bottoms, a more popular indie rock band. They released their first album “Sports,” in 2012, and their next, “You’re Gonna Miss It All,” in 2014, reached 97 on the Billboard 200.

The album kicks off with the song called Holy Ghost that sounds like it was recorded in someone’s basement, which personally I enjoy. The raw and undisguised sound is refreshing. I think this is definitely one of my favorite songs on the album. The song ends with progressively louder guitar strums and then mashes into the next song, “Wedding Singer.” The album goes from slow and somber to upbeat and invigorating, which are both good sounds for the band, making the beginning two songs my favorite part of the album.

Compared to their other music, I think this is my favorite of their albums. It has a mixture of slow and upbeat songs which is a really great variety for them. They have been making music for a while now but I think this is some of their best work. Overall I really like the album and I think I will gladly continue to listen to their music. I give “Holy Ghost” four out of five eagles! If you’re interested this album is available on iTunes and Spotify.

Listen worthy songs include: “The Holy Ghost,” “Wedding Singer,” “Note to Self,” and “Everyday.”
