DIGIPAK (CD) - 4 PANEL
Jackie Greene's new EP The Modern Lives - Vol 2 finds him at a new chapter in his life: his first months of fatherhood, time off his relentless touring circuit, and a cross-country move from Brooklyn to his birthplace of Northern California. This new collection of six original songs is a thematic extension of The Modern Lives - Vol 1 EP, imbued with a Brooklyn basement DIY feel and ethos.
Tracklisting: 1. Crazy Comes Easy 2. Good Old Bad Times 3. Women and The Rain 4. Fragile and Wanting 5. Victim of The Crime 6. That Ain’t Love That’s Sugar
The music of The Modern Lives is intimate, due in part to the basement’s close confines, to the tunes’ folk-blues flavor, and to the fact that Greene ingeniously sang every vocal part himself, as well as played every single instrument: guitar, six-string banjo, bass, drums, and so on. - Sactown Magazine
He effortlessly moves from driving grooves to sweet ballads, and every song is not only fantastically well-written, but also performed with a confident, exuberant energy that feels like a breath of fresh open country air. - Parade Magazine
