Miracles of Modern Science: July 16, 2009 Pianos – Flac and MP3 Downloads

July 21, 2009

These days its a challenge within the “indie/rock/pop” realm to actually produce music that is “original” either in its presentation, production or writing. Miracles of Modern Science have mastered that challenge. The band consists of a cello, violin, stand-up bass, mandolin and drums, and writes and performs songs that sound equally of rock, pop, opera and Broadway. MOMS have in their brief career established a unique identity. On Wednesday at Pianos, MOMS played a forty-minute set of 7 numbers, including three from their debut EP, one single (“Didit”), and three newer songs. The packed room also included another rarity in the fledgling indie band scene — several rows of rabid fans who danced, sang along and demanded an encore that the venue would not permit.

Miracles of Modern Science have two gigs left this Summer in NYC:
Jul 25 2009 Le Poisson Rouge NYC
Aug 8 2009 NYCTaper Presents @ Shea Stadium Brooklyn

We recorded from directly in front of the soundboard where we have set up for all of our Pianos recordings. Other than some distortion on the vocal microphones in the first song, the set was mixed well and this recording is an excellent listen. Enjoy!
