It is mid July and time for a slushy cocktail that Pumpkin tends to demand this time of year. Bayou Swamp Slush is our newest drink created just for our original hostess. Mixing ripe citrus and satsuma infused rum with just a touch of coconut cream gives you a nice blended cruise ship style drink with more flavor and less sugar. While sipping our new frosty we dive into a host of subjects and listen to new music from The Modernes.

One of the best parts of hosting a podcast is the community that you have a chance to be involved with. Time and distance don’t really separate people when you share through the digital sphere. Recently Nick from the Modernes reached out and let us sample some of their music from the self titled album The Modernes. The band hails from Akron, OH and plays surf, rockabilly jazz to name a few genres. Two tracks stood out as our favorites here in the lounge, both of which we play on this episode. We think after listening to Suburban Wave and Inland Island you will want to add the tracks or album to your playlist. Here is a quick bio from the band: The Modernes are a three-piece band out of Akron, OH. Since 2017, The Modernes have been providing high-energy swampy surf and rockabilly originals and an extensive catalog of re-envisioned classics. The Modernes released their self-titled debut EP June 25th, featuring 4 original tracks, and their take on Johnny Cash's original "Big River". their follow-up full length album, featuring modern takes on surf and rockabilly originals is slated for release in 2020. Until then, you can catch them at venues across Northeast Ohio with occasional stops in Michigan, Pennsylvania, NYC, and Tennessee.
