Modern Crusoe is the solo project of 24-year-old Californian Chris Bindloss. Bindloss uses far-off electric guitars, effected percussion, and his drawling vocals to occupy a space somewhere singer-songwriter indie rock and folk music. About “Santiago,” Bindloss says, “The song is about a plane crash that occurred in the Chilean Andes in 1972… It’s a bit morbid, but I found that story so fascinating; I can’t imagine the effect such a harrowing and prolonged experience would have on the human psyche.” Well said, Chris. Fans of Local Natives, Sufjan Stevens, or Owen would be into Modern Crusoe.
