Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West (video collection)

[23 November 2009]

By Tyler Gould

Twelve years ago this week: future platinum-selling Modest Mouse released their second full-length album, The Lonesome Crowded West, one of the best albums of the ‘90s. It was a sign of things to come, filled with dynamic shifts, the raw energy of Isaac Brock’s voice, and the dark, eerie sound that they’ve refined so that you can identify a Modest Mouse song in the space about about a chord and a half.

“Out of Gas”

“Cowboy Dan”

“Teeth Like God’s Shoeshine”

“Heart Cooks Brain” (fan video)

“Jesus Christ Was an Only Child”

“Doin’ the Cockroach”

“Truckers Atlas”
