Modest Mouse: The Lonesome Crowded West

Pitchfork produced a documentary about my favorite album by my favorite band.

The Lonesome Crowded West is the album that introduced me to indi rock and would shape how I identify my musical tastes for years to come. It’s raw and idealistic without the baggage of experience or critique. The lyrics are smart and personal, progressing between quiet and intense. Even listening to it today outshines anything I’ve heard in the past few years.

If you’re a fan, you’ll enjoy the documentary below as much as I did. If you’ve never listened to the album, do yourself a favor and check it out.
