Modest Mouse - The Fruit That Ate Itself (1997)

Modest Mouse is easily one of my favorite bands of all time. When i first got into them many years ago, the title track from this album was one of the first songs i heard and loved. Its a quirky track with barely any guitar and Issac Brock, the singer/guitarist, is basically rapping with his slurred, lispy speech all over the place. I was unable to hunt down this whole record until about a year ago and was elated when i finally got to hear these other wonderful songs. Check it out.

  1. "Sunspots" – 0:39
  2. "The Waydown" – 2:30
  3. "Fruit" - 0:52
  4. "Dirty Fingernails" - 3:20
  5. "Sunspots in the House of the Late Scapegoat" – 2:42
  6. "The Fruit That Ate Itself" – 3:17
  7. "Way Down" – 0:43
  8. "Summer" – 3:12
  9. "Karma's Payment" – 3:28

I've never listened to much modest mouse, but I really enjoyed this. What other stuff of theirs might you suggest?

if you really liked this, I would suggest checking out Lonesome Crowded West or their first LP, This is a Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About.
all of their albums are amazing, in my opinion, and you should check them out eventually, but the two i suggested are more similar to the style of this EP.
