#307 - Modest Mouse - Styrofoam Boots/It’s All Nice On Ice, Alright

A confession: I’ve never really delved into pre-Moon & Antarctica era Modest Mouse, and i’m sure a lot of people will argue that Long Drive & Lonesome Crowded West are their two best records. But this is something that makes little sense in any logical way, but do you ever love a record so completely inside-out that listening to a band’s other records just somehow doesnt even appeal? Well, that. And Moon & Antarctica is a record i’ve probably not listened to for years but will always appreciate as a legit classic of contemporary indie-rock, and sneer away, but such things definitely exist. 

Anyway, this is one of the few tracks I really do know from their 90s output, I think there are certain times when you can tell that it’s Calvin Johnson assisting with the production.

Indie music, huh?
