Update: new Modest Mouse songs

Posted on Saturday 11 November 2006

Since no other recordings have surfaced as of yet, I cleaned out the pauses from the other 4 tracks from the Wiltern show, and thought I’d post them. Its a public service sort of thing. “We’ve Got Everything” starts off a bit harsh, but gets good in the middle, so give it a chance. I already mentioned it, but “People We Wanted To Know” or whatever its called just screams Smiths to me. “Dashboard” is an upbeat “Dance Hall” sort of track, that sounds good, but I expect will come out better in recorded form. “Invisible In Your Car” is a throwback to earlier aggressive “Doin’ The Cockroach”-style Modest Mouse. It even changes up a few times like they used to do. See? Still got it.

Avalon videos here and here for those that don’t get dizzy easily.

And for anyone who missed the other two new songs, they are right here.

    thanks for posting these. i saw mouse down in anaheim on the last of their 4 nights in town and was really impressed, it was long, loose, improvisational, but tight enough and rocking in the right places. and brock was using his tongues. good stuff. and i’ve been seeing them regularly for a very long time. they played even a couple more new songs than the avalon and wiltern shows i’ve seen posted, and would love to see these come available. the naysayers abound, but to my mind brock is still one songwriting weirdo with *the touch*.

    handsome wolffur boeckner played some ridiculous guitar on the sprawling dramamine closer the night i watched, and that was nice.
