You definitely need to keep your eyes on this band,” WXPN’s Bruce Warren wrote after listening to Fort Frances' Harbour. Those words ring true with the band’s new full-length album, The Front Page of the Modern Age. The 10-track collection balances between the grit of barn-burning lead single “Double Take” and the calming quiet of “Stars in Silent Movies.” It’s part wake-up call for a lost world in the wake of the 2016 U.S. election and part reminder that things just might work out okay.

Part of what makes The Front Page of the Modern Age so resonant is the Sturgill Simpson and Allen Toussaint-inspired horn section that, courtesy of John Dorhauer and the Heisenberg Uncertainty Players, features prominently throughout the entire album. Besides the album being the best showcase of David McMillin’s songwriting, this album’s sound is the band’s — Aaron Kiser on drums, Jeff Piper on bass, and the newly-welcomed Jason Ryan tackling guitar and piano duties — most unassailable yet.
