Synopsis: In the 26th episode of Columbia House Party, we break down Modest Mouse’s appropriately titled 2004 album, Good News for People Who Love Bad News.
In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy break down Modest Mouse’s 2004 breakthrough Good News for People Who Like Bad News. Unlike some of the other bands to perform at The Bait Shop, Modest Mouse were already quite well-established, but The OC rub and an enormous hit in Float On helped push them into the mainstream consciousness. That didn’t mean Good News was any less weird and fun, though. As we close out The OC Month, find out more about why a band like Modest Mouse would agree to a bit part on a teen pop-culture series, why our hosts lament their earlier Bukowski appreciation, and why you should revisit the band if Float On is your primary reference point on this week’s podcast.
