ROCK | Modern Baseball



Modern Baseball's music recalls sounds from the early years of indie rock. The Philadelphia quartet has drawn comparisons to cult-favorite American Football — and Modern Baseball admits the band inspired its name — and it doesn't take more than a few songs to hear why. Its debut album "Sports" was well-reviewed, and its latest release, "You're Gonna Miss It All," has been doing even better, because of lyrics that are easy to relate to and atmospheric acoustic guitar work. Many of the album's lyrics relate to the title, and themes of regret and longing are present throughout — "I hate worrying about the future as all my current problems are bases around the past" is just one example — but despite the not-always-cheery content, the music's still effortless to rock out to.

Modern Baseball plays with Tiny Moving Parts, The Hotelier, Sorority Noise, and California Cousins on Tuesday, June 10, at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. 6 p.m. $12-14.;
