Modest Mouse

In the small town of Issaquah, Wash., Isaac Brock, Eric Judy and Jeremiah Green formed Modest Mouse. Their band eschewed the heavy grunge aesthetic for a more personal and, at times, intimate sound. In 1994, they recorded an EP at lo-fi auteur Calvin Johnson’s Dub Narcotics Studio. They wouldn’t release a full-length album until they signed with Up Records. After three years of being together, they finally released ‘This Is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing To Think About.’ They’d recorded another full-length album, ‘Sad Sappy Sucker,’ but delays kept it on the shelf until 2001. Since then, the band has carved a deep niche for themselves. They received mainstream attention in 2004 with the album ‘Good News for People Who Love Bad News’ and the single, ‘Float On,’ found a place on pop radio. Now they enjoy a place among the indie elite.
