"Did we ever get a blood test done to see if Modest Mouse and Brand New are related"

I have no data, but willing to wager that Isaac Brock is an only child and Jesse Lacey has multiple siblings so the plot thickens

"and if complexity is the standard of quality then BN really wouldn’t be on the radar at all"

mostly touché, but Luca and Limousine would beg to differ.

Love both songs but neither is particularly complex technically, harmonically, structurally

I suppose.



I mean, the way Luca builds up to it's Wall-Of-Sound moment is no entry-level musicianship. Same can be said of the fancy chords in the first part of Limousine, and the dynamic build in the 1-7 years section. Ain't no indie garage bands pulling that off.

It’s all great songwriting, I just don’t think complexity is what makes it great, especially Luca. The artist provides the vision, but the power of the big riff that comes in relative to the rest of the song is totally a function of a good mix engineer.

As for Limousine, it may not be entry level but it’s not exactly Exile’s Gate either.

This is pretty much the -yang to Daisy, which is probably why I love Daisy more now, but I feel this is where they perfected their songwriting. Also this flows perfectly unlike TDAG; I think there are a couple of weak songs there and it doesn't flow as smooth as this, or even Daisy for that matter.

The worst Brand New lyrics are the ones that take a clunky cliche like "When I grow up I wanna be a ____" or "Let's all go play ____"

Underrated annoying lyric on this is "Every night you were trippin' out"
