[…you killed the better part of me…]
i said what i said and you know what i mean
but i still can’t focus on anything

inside the cover album tiny cities, sun kil moon’s mark kozelek truly brings me back to the reasons of why i love modest mouse. strictly full of isaac brock’s experimental harmonies, sun kil moon shares an earthy haunting richness that highlights the music’s underlining fragility.for some this may not seem ground breaking,
but it doesn’t have to be.

this is no rendition, just simply a modest mouse tribute made by a real fan inspired by music and giving back to what they’ve already received. for those who have never experienced modest mouse before, please start with their track dramamine and then give into sun kil moon‘s version. its perfect for summer days like these.

About The Author

“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

    I’ve just spent the last couple of hours poring through your blog, amazed (and slightly disturbed) by how similar our tastes are. Thank you. Since learning about Beck and Sia’s duet of “You’re the One that I’ve Want”, I’ve been DYING to hear it. Despite the fact that I’m a total stranger, it would mean a LOT to a fellow Sia lover if you would upload it again. Many thanks either way.
