This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About expands upon the themes of emotional and geographic isolation found in the bands early recordings, and finds the band mixing slow, brooding numbers with thrashing guitar workouts.

Modest Mouse is an alternative rock band which formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington, United States. The band's original lineup consisted of guitarist Isaac Brock, drummer Jeremiah Green and bassist Eric Judy. The Modest Mouse of the 2000s was very of its time, when indie rock was turning more porous and mainstream. The Moon and Antarctica from 2000 clothed their decrepit strains in major label finery and production by someone outside of their local bubble, Califone's Brian Deck. The record also let in influences that were not yet entirely indie-approved, such as dance music on Tiny Cities Made of Ashes. Morbid lyrics and backmasked guitars notwithstanding, Gravity Rides Everything was catchy enough to sell Nissan Quest minivans
my edition has only the C / D record. instead of the A / B record is one from the band "o.a.r." from the album "xx"....
I returned my copy to the shop I bought it from. Generally, the pressing isn't the worst, but it's nothing special. I didn't have a lot of noise like others have stated. The only real problem I came across was side D was pressed off center. Having been pressed at GZ in '14 it doesn't surprise me.

As the Modest Mouse reissue train keeps rolling, the sound on these pressings continue to be fantastic and this is no exception! BUT I do have to ask if anyone else has noticed these tiny glitchy type noises all throughout the pressings for both This ia a Long Drive and Lonesome Crowded West. I have a colored version and black version of both and I notice this on every one. It's not overwhelming like a pop and it's not indiscernible like crackling; it is the same exact sound that appears in the background of the sound stage and it is pretty clear in quieter passages. It isn't the biggest deal but it certainly is annoying after a while.
Beautiful. Sounds amazing.

Those tiny white bumps are probably paper from the sleeve, I have lots of records like that, and it never comes loose. If it causes skipping, I would ask for another copy. If you ordered from glacial pace they would likely oblige. Have you tried a very thorough cleaning with an alcohol based solution?
Does anyone else have tiny white bumps in their copy which seem to be embedded in the vinyl? They cause my stylus to skip pretty badly.
Just recieved mine today, along with the 2 singles (color was a nice surprise), and I must say that they sound absolutely amazing. I have a pretty decent system, and these pressings were definitely made with care. As lo fi as these albums are, their analog warmth resonates through this analog medium more efficiently than any band in recent memory. I am do glad I just got an all tube preamp stage before these came. The sounds coming our of the speakers are simply beautiful!
I paid seperately for the singles, and I have no regrets because they are limited run color vinyl!
Did you have to separately order the singles or were they included in preorder with the albums?
I can't wait for this to show up in my mailbox!...The US version that is.
