If you have some time to kill this weekend and crave more Modest Mouse goodness, Pitchfork’s excellent documentary on The Lonesome Crowded West is very much recommended. You can watch it here.

For the film, Pitchfork.tv traveled to Los Angeles, London, and cities across the Pacific Northwest (Portland, Seattle, Olympia, Port Townsend) to discuss the making of the album with everyone from frontman Isaac Brock to Calvin Johnson and producer Phil Ek. We learned the album’s story back to front, including the fact that halfway through its recording, Ek was called in to rerecord three songs from the original sessions. The film also includes archival footage taken during live performances and original recording/mix sessions at Moon Music in Olympia.



This and the new #Organist podcast make me want to skip the Super Bowl this weekend.
