[OLD WIVES TALES] You may have been wondering what happened to Drew Grow and the Pastors’ Wives. For a while, the band, which played a forceful mix of garage-shaking rock and heartrending folk anchored by its singer-namesake’s propulsive, shuddering voice, was a Portland music scene fixture. Grow’s been quiet the last few years—basically since a 2011 car accident left him with several broken bones and hefty hospital bills. But the band didn’t go the way of so many other local artists and evaporate into the ether. They just changed their name. Reborn as Modern Kin, the group is prepping a new album, to be released on drummer Jeremiah Hayden’s Amigo/Amiga label. The only indication of the band’s new direction online is a live recording from a Seattle show last month, posted online by Seattle Weekly editor-in-chief and former WW music editor Mark Baumgarten. They reveal the band—now a three-piece, sans keyboardist Seth Schaper—to be tighter, louder and more visceral than ever, and still driven by Grow’s elastic, vibrato shout. According to Baumgarten, Grow seems to have chosen a path of newfound urgency, and “it was a wise decision.”
