It’s amazing to me how many one-man bands there are these days. And unlike the one-man bands of the past, very few have the cymbals between their knees.
Corey Palmer, out of Minnesota, wrote and recorded an entire album in his home under the band name These Modern Socks. After enlisting the assistance of four other musicians, with whom he had worked in previous bands, he started playing live and sold out all of those albums.
So, he began work on his second album – Picking a Lock At the Speed of Light – which was released two months ago.
The sound is a clever blend of acoustic meets electronic, and I think this band has a solid chance of “making it.”
They have no videos to speak of, but here’s the title track, “Picking a Lock At the Speed of Light,” courtesy of My Big Mouth Strikes Again – a music blog that does an excellent job of finding new bands.
