The Modern Electric

I’m always trying to represent bands from Northeast Ohio, seeing as many people around here are always bashing Ohio for many reasons – football, politics, the stereotype of “backwardness.”  Instead of responding to criticisms by bashing all your states, I just try to change your opinion on my home.

According to their bio to LastFM, one of my time consuming websites…

“The Modern Electric is a Cleveland-based Indie-rock band. They are comprised of 4 young gentlemen, Garrett Komyati (vocals, organ/piano) Bryan Lecky (guitar) Matthew Puleo Childers (bass) and Michael O’Brien (drums). All born and raised in the Cleveland area, they play local venues and continue to expand their growing fan base and show their undying love for their city.” (

“David Bowie (Save Us All)”  is a tribute to the rocker and my top most played song “Love and Misery” is about the songwriter wondering what he did to deserve heartbreak.

The album is available on iTunes but if you want to hear a song or two tune into my show on Mondays between 8 and 10pm.

Free Music? New Pretty Lights EP

So here I am, with 70 or more pages to do of history reading when my friend Peter texts me and says “new pretty lights. some is sooo chill.” The two of us saw Pretty Lights at the Note in West Chester, PA in November and it was an awesome show.  It’s just this guy Derek Vincent Smith, and he’s from CO, but live he’s accompanied by drummer Cory Eberhard.

This text of course led to some procrastination when I downloaded the new EP on The new EP is called “Making Up a Changing Mind.” I just finished listening to it, but so far I enjoy “Understand me now” and “I can see it in your face.”

His other albums are “Filling Up the City Skies,”  “Passing By Behind Your Eyes” and “Taking Up Your Precious Time.”
