2013 seems to be a kick ass year for music, as mentioned in other Music Monday posts, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs AND The Postal Service are coming out with albums, but now add Modest Mouse to that ever growing list. Their long-awaited sixth studio album, their first since parting ways with Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, who joined on the band’s 2007 release We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank has high hopes to be something good. I remember seeing Marr play with Modest Mouse, it was magical, simply magical.
Six years is a long hiatus, but I have no doubt in my mind Modest Mouse still has it, the really cool part about their recording process? They’re recording at Big Boi‘s Stankonia Studios in Atlanta. That’s right, as in Big Boi from Outkast. This has the potential to be a great album, until the release later this year let’s boogie to Cities Made of Ashes from Modest Mouse’s 2000 album The Moon & Antarctica.
