Comment:

With most bands that I listen to with any regularity, I go through listening phases. I will listen to them obsessively for a period of time, but then shelve their records in favor of new/other music and generally not listen to them again for months before becoming obsessed with them again. I realized recently, however, that in the 5+ years I've been listening to Modest Mouse, I've never really shelved them. I go through obsessive periods with them once or twice a year, but between those obsessive periods, I still listen to them frequently. There are a few other bands I listen to that the same is true for, but none have lasted as long as Modest Mouse, nor have any of the other bands put out as much brilliant material as they have; they've yet to put out even a mediocre album.

Because of the aforementioned realization, I decided to make a mix of my favorite Modest Mouse songs, both for myself and to give to some of my friends I think should listen to more Modest Mouse. I chose songs off each of their full lengths, EPs, and compilation albums, and I think this mix gives a good overview of the various facets of the band.

Click "The World at Large" to download the first disc and "Think Long" to download the second (all tracks in V0 quality MP3s - if you don't know what that means, don't worry about it). Because I tried to sequence the tape in a way that made sense, I think the first disc leans a bit more to the band's experimental side while the second is more on the catchy/poppy side. Mix title taken from Convenient Parking.
