Modest Mouse - The Fruit That Ate Itself-CD-South

Modest Mouse - The Fruit That Ate Itself


Produced by Calvin Johnson (K Records / Beat Happening etc), ‘The Fruit That Ate Itself’ possesses a leaner and meaner sound than earlier Modest Mouse releases - the emphasis here is less on noise than groove and the spare, edgy approach of cuts like ‘Dirty Fingernails’ and the title track recalls the goofy indie-funk of Dub Narcotic Sound System and other likeminded Johnson-helmed projects.
