Charles S. McVey claims that the songs on Modern Living weren't written for a gay audience. Spinning tales of lonely nights spent with gay porn and a Joan Crawford movie, the ache of long-distance MySpace obsession and the chill of the dungeon floor, McVey wants us to remember that his music is emotional, not sexual. And then he'll sing something like You know I'm having fun when you won't let me cum, from "Sir." Billed as "melancholy piano rock," Modern Living contains sphincter-tightening synthesizer and lots of strings and horns. The lifelong performer calls this EP his most mature yet. The slightly overproduced, layered sound backing up the "honest and introspective lyrics" (You know I'll be back for more/'Cause I'm my daddy's whore) will leave your inner sexual deviant unsatisfied and waiting for that golden shower.
