The Bad Plus - Rite of Spring II
The Bad Plus - Rite of Spring I
Blow It Up, Daddy!
If you have some time to kill this weekend and crave more Modest Mouse goodness, Pitchfork’s excellent documentary on The Lonesome Crowded West is very much recommended. You can watch it here.
For the film, Pitchfork.tv traveled to Los Angeles, London, and cities across the Pacific Northwest (Portland, Seattle, Olympia, Port Townsend) to discuss the making of the album with everyone from frontman Isaac Brock to Calvin Johnson and producer Phil Ek. We learned the album’s story back to front, including the fact that halfway through its recording, Ek was called in to rerecord three songs from the original sessions. The film also includes archival footage taken during live performances and original recording/mix sessions at Moon Music in Olympia.
Helped make this.
In the empty lot where the ladies play blindman’s bluff with the key chain And the all-night girls they whisper of escapades out on the D-train We can hear the night watcman click his flashlight Ask himself if it’s him or them that’s really insane
Woodson is our wildcard, lets do this!
