would you like to escape for a lil while?…

from the pacific northwest, here’s my favorite modest mouse collaboration with 764-HERO. i’ll never forget the first time i heard whenever you see fit. for over 14 minutes, two spacey guitar chords, circling drums and clashing vocals screaming within intensely sad lyric repetitions made me sit completely still. despite its long length, the music never became boring. in fact, it felt so good, i kept on pressing repeat over and over again so i could stay in that daze forever.

modest mouse & 764-HERO :: whenever you see fit

talking on the telephone
looking like we’re all alike, we’re all alone
(whenever you see fit)
and, everything you ever said
and you’ll wake up early and you’ll live to regret
(nothing is clear)
and you’ll wake up early and you’ll live to regret
(tell the truth)
and you’ll wake up early and you’ll live to regret
(whenever you go wrong)
and you’ll wake up early and you’ll live to regret
(everything’s fine)

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
