Whether equating modern dreams to prison or lamenting modern palaces built on suffering, Dick Stusso brings earnest honesty and a sincere glimpse at modern day living to life on single "Modern Music." The track from his upcoming Hardly Art album, In Heaven swaggers with confidence and courage; blistering blues-inspired guitars, along with steady pattering and brushes of percussion lingering throughout like a puff of smoke curling in a darkened bar. Meanwhile, Stusso meanders through it all, with a husky, simple wish to find a "good time and a little cash." It's a track of avoidance with Stusso admitting that "nobody wants to look at the dark heart," rather, we're all searching for that "good time" with only Stusso as our guide.
