Modest Mouse

I've been a Modest Mouse fan for quite a few years, now and this album itself was made in 2007. Regardless, it's awesome, for several reasons.

One of the main reasons that this is an awesome album is because i feel that Modest Mouse have finally found themselves, they're far more comfortable with their sound than they ever have been and i think that's because of the addition of Mr.Johnny Marr (the ex Smiths guitarist). One of my favorite tracks on the album is Steam Engenius, which you can listen to here.

One thing i love about Modest Mouse is how wacky they are, their sound is kind of like hillbilly crazy but with gritty down to earth sounds. I always say that if you take Modest Mouse instruments away from them, they'd play on pots and pans and i reckon that's especially true in the case of this album, they just ooze the raw primal passion of wanting to create music no matter how they make it. You can tell they're having lots of fun, too.

Give them and particularly this album a listen!
