Modest Mouse made their first significant mark with songs whose meanings are simultaneously universal and painfully personal.

This is also intricately bound up with the physical geography Modest Mouse inhabited. The urban paranoia of post-punk seeps into wide-open rural, looming industrial and encroaching suburban vistas, all alike in their sinister, hypnotic repetition. With the first words of Long Drive"traveling swallowing Dramamine," a sense of drugged conveyance through some grand monotony settles over us.
We seem to glimpse empty landscapes with twisty bits of things blowing through them in the window of a train. Strip malls and parking lots, monuments and steeples, empty fields and dark forests scroll by in a purgatorial loop.
This becomes overt on "Convenient Parking", a dusty practice riff with broken springs. For Brock, these enclosing physical confines are tantamount to mental ones; he's always moving forward without getting anywhere different, and he confronts this existential emergency with disdain and terrified awe.
The music cultivates its particular urgency by devising and then breaking free from psychic traps. The earth and heavens are not mediums but inescapable masses, crushing us in the seam where they meet. The feeling of being stuck in a small town inflates to cosmological proportions.
Home-schooled in religious hippie communes, Brock was primed for this visionary vocation. His lyrics are marked by a war between militant atheism and kind of crypto-Christian mysticism, a tension that twists his perspective into strange shapes.
On these records, the Louis Jordan Saturday Nite Fish Fry Aint Nobody Here But Us Chickens is steadily encroaching on the wild in ways that feel spiritually symbolic.
Brock wants to wrench apart ground and sky, prefabricated towns and consumer culture, to find an exit hatch into some deeper, more meaningful state of being which, as Modest Mouse This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About suspects on "Exit Does Not Exist", is a fantasy. Modest Mouse never captured their particular rural paranoia better than on Lonesome 's "Cowboy Dan", a minor key dirge that takes us to a jet-black desert rustling below the occasional shooting star.
It's a folkloric tale of a cowboy who tries to shoot down God as revenge for mortality, with eerie calls and groans floating out of a vast, breathing darkness.
