New Grenada's third album Modern Problems takes a rough, guitar-heavy, but still melodic approach to the problems of the modern world, in songs that take a casual snapshot of people and their issues....and we've all got issues. John Nelson sings lyrics that sound like observations of people he sees on the street every day, like the girl who's "trying to find her niche" or the one with ADD who writes to TV stars. Nicole Allie sings lead on a couple especially punchy/spunky numbers, like the great "Parting Shots." Mostly, New Grenada offers transcendence in the form of loud guitars and unleashed rock music that has a keen pop sense underneath; think of Superchunk and their legions of followers, but with an extra punk-blues sort of grit. With FRIENDLY FOES (a new band from Ryan Allen of THUNDERBIRDS ARE NOW!) and ALAN PATRICK SCHEURMAN.
