Modest Mouse anyone?
« on: December 23, 2006, 08:46:39 pm »
I have to appreciate their half-trippy half-happy beats, along with their oxymoronic lyrics, which are usually half-cynical yet half-hopeful.

Anyone else love them?


Schrodinger will kill you like a cat in a box. Maybe.

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide target selection.

Televison - A medium. So called because it is neither rare nor well-done.

Keep an open mind. Just make sure it's not so open your brain falls out.

Frankly, I'm not a fan, I've heard far too much over and over at parties and it just doesn't appeal anymore. Besides which, pretentious wannabe-indie kids who claim they are awesome simply because they're minorly obscure irritate me. Pfeh. Maybe their new album will be better.

I feel like Indie Rock Pete.

Meh. They suffered with the whole "Float On" and "Ocean Breathes Salty" phase. Most people only listen to them because those two songs got famous. For a few months. Then they headed back into obscurity. You ask someone who they are now, they'll probably remember Float On or Ocean Breathes Salty. But they won't know true hits like Tiny Cities Made of Ashes.

Yeah, I know neither of them. So both fail the Pluke-Should-Know-Them-Test
