Modest Mouse formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington and has become, over the past two decades, the indie rock gold standard: One of the few bands capable of achieving massive popularity without sacrificing their longtime fans.
Tropical F--- Storm
Tropical F--- Storm is Gareth Liddiard of The Drones joining forces with bandmate Fiona Kitschin and two other gals to make some extraordinarily abrasive yet undeniably catchy candy-coated Aussie sludge punk. Most importantly, in an age of underlying dread, I feel like too few albums have really nailed that queasy feeling of anxiety that permeates life on Earth right now. You can’t do that just by being loud or yelling about politics. That’s all well and good, but it’s rarely visceral. This album, though, IS. The bizarre tunings and chords, the wailing backing harmonies that sound like a coven chanting hellish incantations, the filthy percussion, the other-worldly synth sections - this record FEELS like humanity cannibalizing itself. It’s remarkably perfect in its madness.
