Modern Baseball – Your Graduation (New Song)


It has been quite the year for the dorky quartet Modern Baseball with their debut album being released just over a year ago and signing to Run For Cover Records and re-releasing “Sports” with them and going on tour across the U.S. over the summer.

From Kid are an indie pop duo. They have been remixed by Natural Animal, a Toronto-based pop-electro act. This is one part of a series of remixes helmed by Parisian house producer Freak You.  A package of 5 remixes of ‘Sun’ (entitled ‘Variations of Sun’) is out this week through On The Fruit records. How very informative of me ?
