Local indie rockers the Modern Electric spent three weeks in Austin in 2014, recording their latest album, Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, with producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon). They found the producer's name on the back of a Spoon record and sent him the song "All We Have is Now," a brisk pop track with fluttering vocals and piano flourishes. To their surprise, he was into it and invited them to his studio. While the band's debut was a little more acoustic guitar-based, Original Motion Picture Soundtrack has a fuller sound with piano taking center stage.
