A Life of Arctic Sounds

More Modest Mouse, presently. Because blah blah blah *insert hipster joke here*. I honestly don’t know how Modest Mouse, out of all the indie bands that have worked their way to popularity, has become a magnet for hipster jokes, but somehow they are the agreed-upon byword for indie darlings who’ve outgrown their indie cred. Pretty arbitrarily, it would seem. It’s kind of unfair really, since Modest Mouse managed the transition without changing their sound much, unlike plenty of others. But since I wasn’t really aware of them while this was happening, I can’t judge. All I know is they were a weird little indie band who suddenly fluked into being a popular weird little band, and experienced some hipster backlash for it. They’re no less weird for it.
