Melbourne’s MOD CON follows up its killer debut single ‘Do It Right Margo’ with a pointed and ferocious follow-up in ‘Neighbourhood’. The trio examines contemporary attitudes towards Australia’s Indigenous history, spotlighting and skewering the mainstream’s indifference to the plight of the First Peoples.
Your Town is one of the most accurate and on point records lyrically this year. For me personally it drives the nail home and reminds me that time is limited, that things end and not always well. It’s a fearful record at times, but strong in facing and addressing those fears. It battles cognitive dissonance with audible dissonance in spectacular fashion. It’s a cry to the void, but one that doesn’t expect a call back.
