Did anyone think Kanye and Bon Iver would work? I'm not worried about it, more intrigued.

Why are you all even worried. If anyone could pull off quirkiness like this, it's this band. I'm definitely intrigued.

thom yorke + mf doom, kanye + bon iver, modest mouse + big boi? i mean, even if none of them are ever any good it's cool that they both respect the works of one another. eventually something like that will pan out...

You guys are acting like he's working with fuckin' Gucci Mane or something. Big Boi is one of the most absolutely unique artists in hip-hop. I'm excited.

For those of you that don't know, Big Boi is half of Outkast. He's a monster on the mic.

I think its MM I'm more worried about making this work well than BB. Big dropped one of my favorite albums of last year, but I haven't heard much I love from Mouse in since like '04

Thanks for the nice response, Andcas.

I was just mentioning it because lots of people that I know don't even know who Big Boi is, but since you guys are all such music geniuses I guess it was a stupid comment.

I don't think this will be as bad as you guys are making it out to be. I mean, it's not like it's Lil Wayne or Waka Floka working with your favorite band. Modest Mouse and BB are both great artists. Considering Big Boi has never done anything wack musically (in my opinion), I don't think he's going to start here.

Fuck. No. This is not happening.

I was hoping that it was only coincidence that people were listing Kanye West next to Modest Mouse when mentioning their favorite bands. The musical crossover was inevitable.

Soon we're gonna get Modest Mouse's Herp the Way You Derp feat. Eminem, Little Jon, and Usher SKRILLEX REMIX.

I like Skrillex, but you get my point. Why do we always have to have pop songs "featuring" other singers.

They could have picked someone more close to their style at least. Old Mouse is gone. QQ
