Modest Mouse
Too Many Fiestas for Reuben / Cowboy Dan

As a reminder of just how weird and wonderful the Modest Mouse universe was in its early days -- in its scratchy guitar tones, as well as in Isaac Brock's unhinged voice -- Glacial Pace and Fat Possum are reissuing their primitive classics, along with a little helping of 7" to sweeten the deal. The 7" that accompanies the reissue of 'The Lonesome Crowded West' features a take on "Cowboy Dan" taht invovles Mr. Beat Happening (aka Calvin Johnson), as well as a B-side from the record, "Too Many Fiestas for Rueben". A lovely little origin story and a must have for indie rock geeks.

Interstate 8

Interstate 8 is the second EP released by US indie band, Modest Mouse. Originally released in 1996, this vinyl has been long out of print and therefore highly sought after by fans and collectors alike. It contains the band's first ever demo recordings which were recorded in Isaac Brock's garage. Recommended!

Building Nothing Out of Something

Building Something Out Of Nothing is a compilation of singles and rarities by Modest Mouse. They are the band credited with breathing new life into American indie and alternative music after the death of grunge. This highly regarded collection is being reissued on vinyl for the first time in more than ten years and is thought to be an excellent starting point for the uninitiated and a genuine crowd-pleaser for those in-the-know.

White Lies, Yellow Teeth / Buttons to Push the Buttons

Modest Mouse are celebrating the days when they were at their rawest, playing stunningly rough guitar and howling lyrics for lost souls over disorientating dissonance. 'This Is a Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About' and 'The Lonesome Crowded West' are two early entries in the indie rock canon, and they're being reissued so we can all have the proof. This 7" features two tracks that failed to make their way onto a record proper: "White Lies, Yellow Teeth", which has been swiming freely through the internet for a while, and "Buttons to Push Buttons". 

Modest Mouse
The Moon & Antarctica

The third studio album proper from the American indie group was their first for a major label. Following the hugely acclaimed 'The Lonesome Crowded West', the group sharpened their sound, making it more melodic and mellow, though their quirks remain as they expanded into more layered psychedelic and art rock sounds. Isaac Brock's lyrics are as brilliant and philosophical as ever, the bass playing is top and the guitars float along gorgeously. 'The Moon & Antarctica' is often regarded as one of the greatest indie rock albums of its era, appearing high up in many 'Best of Decade' lists.

The Fruit That Ate Itself

Originally released in 1997, ‘The Fruit That Ate By Itself is the third EP from American indie rock luminaries Modest Mouse. Produced by founder of K records- Beat Happening’s Calvin Johnson- this EP is more in line with Johnson’s past work, recalling the playful indie-funk of Dub Narcotic System, and it is built around a leaner and meaner sound in comparison to their earlier material, with the emphasis being less on noise and more on grooves. 

Modest Mouse
Sad Sappy Sucker

Originally released in 2001 but conceived in 1994, ‘Sad Sappy Sucker’ was intended for Modest Mouse’s debut LP, but delays meant the record was shelved and, essentially, it was forgotten about until its subsequent release seven years later. All the original 12 songs recorded during the Dub Narcotic Studio session are here, including the incredibly rare ‘Worms Vs. Birds’ 7”. Also included here is bonus material featuring nine songs from lead singer Isaac Brock’s project ‘Dial-a-Song’, which are basically songs that could only be heard on his answering machine every day by calling in.  

Modest Mouse
The Lonesome Crowded West

Modest Mouse’s third LP, ‘The Lonesome Crowded West’, was originally released in 1997, and ultimately helped to mould the American indie rock sound that became synonymous with the Pacific Northwest. Its endemic, influential sound has been copied from both sides of the Atlantic, but its honest existentialism makes it a modern day classic perfect for a revisit.
