Modest Mouse
Modest Mouse
Modest Mouse was formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington. and over the last decade has become the indie rock standard; one of few bands capable of treading the narrow path where massive popularity is possible without sacrificing longtime fans.

The band released their first full-length album, This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About, on the Up label in 1996. With the release of their second album, The Lonesome Crowded West in 1997, the band's status reached new heights with a legion of fans and critical acclaim. In 2000, Modest Mouse was signed to Epic Records and released their third album, The Moon & Antarctica. In 2004 came the release of their breakthrough album, Good News For People Who Love Bad News, which included the hit "Float On" and has sold over 1.5 million copies and earned the band two Grammy nominations.

Modest Mouse released We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, on March 20, 2007 and immediately entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #1. Most recently the band released their latest record, Strangers to Ourselves in March, 2015, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200, and at #1 on the Rock, Alternative, Vinyl, and Internet charts the week it was released.
Tropical Fuck Storm
Tropical Fuck Storm
Tropical Fuck 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 madness.
