    Modest Mouse

    To all you DD-ites out there who are like "Oh great, another band that probably has shoddy music" Do not click that board index button yet!

    Firstly,
    Darkdemon, I am dissappointed with you. You do not have a thread discussing the orgasmic music that flows from the band called by us earthlings, MODEST MOUSE.

    Now, I won't be a fanboy who defends every aspect of this band to the death, because they are a... strange band, and lots of their music is less than ordinary. They have produced relatively few great songs that have become great successes, but they are the best in my book.

    Anyways, just thought I'd bring some of their (better) work to the surface.
    Please, please, please take the time to listen to just one of these. They really deserve more credit than they get.

    Here are a couple of songs, and if you decide you like them, follow the links and check out some more of their stuff.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLkC8l3nJro -> Float On (easily most popular song)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erc40wCxRZo -> Dashboard (easily the silliest music video)

    Now, the lead singer is crazy, so the lyrics don't make sense.
    Just see past that, people, and let the music flow!

    Courts^

    Re: Modest Mouse

    Listened to both the songs a while back, and I love them.

    Modest Mouse is very good, In my opinion. The music just sounds so amazing, especially float on. Float on just works with all the instruments, IMO. Dashboard is good, but I don't think it works with as the instruments as well as Float on does/did.
    Stripes would be good camouflage, if tigers weren't bright orange.

    The music reminds of me Franz Ferdinand, personally i didn't really like it, the mansvoice didn't sound right and eventually became repetative. also the Lyrics seemed very repetative. Though that was for Float on, I thought Dashboard had quite a good sound to it. But i'm not that amazed by them to be honest.

    I haven't listened to them much, but my favorite by them is "Missed The Boat".

    I pictured their vocalist waay different too. As in not fat.

    Modest Mouse has been one of my favorite bands for awhile. People as Places as People and Missed the Boat are two of my favorite songs from them.
