Early post this week as I will be traveling to Chicago tomorrow. Strangely I can’t identify any Chicago artists on my list (I’ll keep working on that)and post one next week).

So I went with a recent favorite of mine. and they are a somewhat recent discovery. As I dug through the proto-punk, punk, post-punk, and no-wave scenes, I fell into the Modern Lovers.

My only previous exposure was when lead singer, Jonathan Richman, appeared as the weird dude singing interludes in There’s Something About Mary. I had only thought of him as some novelty singer and thought nothing more of him until I heard Modern Lovers and recognized his voice.

Since they have become a welcome addition to the Studio Mix.
