Modest Mouse gets the honour of being in BoobNewb’s Artist spotlight. This Indie rock act formed in 1993 with vocalist/guitarist Isaac Brock, bassist Eric Judy, and drummer Jeremiah Green. The band had been flowing around different labels for a while releasing LPs and EPs until they finally came aboard the revamped Lollapalooza Tour in 2004. 2004 also brought the release of their latest and critically acclaimed album; Good News for People Who Love Bad News.

Epitomic.com describes the band’s style as being best known in indie rock circles for its angular, warping chords, poetic, desolate lyrics, and intricate, mesmerizing drums.“Since their inauspicious beginnings in a shed outside an Issaquah trailer park, Modest Mouse (named for an obscure reference to the American middle class) has become the class of the indie rock world, spokesmen for that huge group of smart misfits who skulk around decrepit pool tables in unfashionable bars and slouch behind messy record store counters, grown-up kids who like their rock intelligent, weird, and edgy.”

Don’t forget to download or buy their latest album, “Good News for People who like Bad News”.
