previous post was about the artists that have featured the most on this blog in the 5 years we're on Blogger. A band that wasn't in that Top 12, although it is one of our favorites, is Modest Mouse. This is because the band is laying dormant in the last 5 years, having only released the b-sides and rarities compilation "No One's First and You're Next" in 2009. Recently it was announced that Modest Mouse will be playing at Coachella festival this April, so perhaps we can keep our hopes up for something new from them in the near future.
Until that happens, we always have the five great albums they have released between 1996 and 2007 as well as their countless singles and EPs which give us plenty of material to consider for inclusion in our Vintage Tracks series. And below is the video that reminded me that a Modest Mouse post was long overdue: check out pitchfork tv's documentary about the making of their 1997 classic second LP "The Lonesome Crowded West", as well as a clip for our favorite cut from that album, the single "Heart Cooks Brain":
