4 stars MODEST MIDGET, from The Netherlands, was formed in 2008, and is primarily a band revolving around the compositions of main main Lonny Ziblat. They released their first album in 2010, and have also released two EPs since they started out. "Crysis" is their most recent album, and was released by Ziblat's own label Multi-Polar Music in 2014.

Vibrant, varied and often fairly challenging material is what Modest Midget provides on their second album "Crysis". Challenging as seen from an accessible point of view though, Modest Midget's self-description as alternative and progressive pop says a bit about their compositions being quite accessible in terms of sticking with harmonies, easy to fathom lead motifs and similar features, the challenging aspect here comes by way of variety, unexpected stylistic developments and several instances of humorous, arguably circus-inspired music in unusual constellations. Still, it is a fairly good album overall, but perhaps one with a somewhat marginalized audience. A production that merits a check by those who find the descriptions challenging, accessible and unusual used to summarize a CD.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
