    First Modest Mouse record not completely unlistenable because of distortion/loudness-war!?
    Great video btw.

    The creator of this video watched too many of those claymation ads for MTV in the 80s and 90s.

    Video: beyond awesome
    Music: pretty damn good
    Vocals: ruins the entire thing

    The guy from Modest Mouse needs to STFU and stop ruining their music!

      Those were my thoughts exactly.

      I’d have to disagree with you on that one. Isaac’s voice (and lyrics, and guitar playing) are one of the things I like most about Modest Mouse.

      I really do love Modest Mouse though, I thoroughly enjoy every album they’ve released (in Australia, I haven’t tracked down ‘This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About’ or ‘The Lonesome Crowded West’ yet).

    That’s a fantastic video for a surreal song, thank you!

    You really should track those albums down, Itsumishi. The Lonesome Crowded West is one of their best.

    I believe that there is a strong Remedios Varo influence here. see for example

    Yeah I think I will download them right now.

    I’ve bought everything I’ve come across in Aus (and bought The Lonesome Crowded West whilst holidaying in NYC but somehow lost the cd before I got a chance to listen to it!!)
