Product Description

Amazon.ca

Everywhere and His Nasty Parlour Tricks, an eight-song EP from Modest Mouse, is a mellow affair. The release combines old tracks from Night on the Sun (an out-of-print vinyl-only EP), remixes, and outtakes from the The Moon and Antarctica sessions along with a couple new songs. "Willful Suspension of Disbelief" is a sedated intro that didn't make it onto Moon, but it sets the perfect tranquil mood to introduce this disc. Although the new track "You're the Good Things" builds intensity with quickening drumbeats and front man Isaac Brock's tension-filled vocals, most of the songs on this album float in a dreamier state. "The Air"--producer Brian Deck's remix of several Moon tracks collaged together--is a woozy instrumental jam that enters experimental, electronic territory. Brock gets sensitive on "So Much Beauty in Dirt," exclaiming that there's "so much beauty it could make you cry" over stripped-down guitars and subtle psychedelic effects. While Brock's distinct vocal and guitar style makes this most definitely a Modest Mouse product, Everywhere is a relaxed evolution for Modest Mouse, a drift down the indie-rock back roads, an Americana-meets-post-rock revisioning of their old sound. --Jennifer Maerz

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Music for a Rainy Winter July 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
It cracks me up that "purist" Modest Mouse fans give this album a lower rating because it isn't like Building Something Out of Nothing or A Long Drive or Lonesome Crowded West or Moon Over Antartica. To me, that's like complaining that Radiohead's The Bends isn't anything like Pablo Honey or that Kid A isn't anything like OK Computer. What makes Modest Mouse and Radiohead awesome bands is that they experiment with sounds while still staying true to their own creative direction. Their sounds change. If you want Modest Mouse to keep re-releasing versions of Lonesome then I say you don't really appreciate the full scope of their music.
On Everywhere and His Nasty Parlour Tricks, Modest Mouse sounds like they're playing a small club on a mellow Thursday night in the middle of a Northwest rainy winter, not tearing up The Showbox on a sweaty Saturday night in the heat of summer. The two gems are Night on the Sun and Here It Comes, although every song is fantastic with one notable exception: #5. This is a bit of a stinker. I skip it every time because it sounds like filler. That said, the stripped down sound and slower tempo of this album is a striking contrast to other MM albums, and equally satisfying.

4.0 out of 5 stars folk done modest mouse style June 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
admittedly, Im not the biggest fan of modest mouse. I dont own all of their albums, Ive never seen them live, I dont like Good News...(which alot of people dont. I dont even own the thing) and I certainly am having a hard time finding any of their indie releases in the area I live in. So since you the reader know I have only a small experience with the beauty that is modest mouse. that being said, this is a phenominal EP. basically take the snippets between some songs on the moon and antarctica and multiply it times 7 and bang heres the album. its rather trippy and definitely a headphone listen. the songs blend well with each other, some of them could even be on the album. my only qualm with this album is that it doesnt sound too great in a terrible system (but what album does?) and I came as a rat and the mix of songs off of the moon and antarctica should not have been included. the mix is a little interesting, but I admit I didnt know it was a mix at first.
buy it, its a nifty album. definitely listen to it at night.

3.0 out of 5 stars Willful Suspension Of Disbelief July 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
Everywhere and His Nasty Parlour Tricks is a neat little sparkle of a cd that can at times be very enchanting, but at other times be tuneless and drudging. Willful Suspension Of Disbelief is the first and my favorite track. It's very hypnotic and discorporating. Great to listen to in those euphoric moments of trance before falling asleep. Night On The Sun is a little too long for my taste, but interesting nonetheless. 3 Inch Horses, Two Faced Monsters is another surreal Isaac Brock tail that will fantasize and beguile listeners. You're The Good Things is very well written and is my second favorite on this ep. The Air is elegant and dreamy, with a very floating vibe to it. So Much Beauty In Dirt is monotonous and tuneless. I'm not really into that track. Here It Comes is a musically light song, but the gruesome lyrics depict an imminent murder. I Came As A Rat is a cool closer. This cd is alright. Modest Mouse completists may want to have this, but for everyone else, I'd recommend anything by Radiohead.

5.0 out of 5 stars The evolution toward psychedelia continues Sept. 28 2001
Format:Audio CD
As wonderful as it was, Modest Mouse's last full-length, Moon & Antarctica, seemed like a tentative experiment in sound, with its excursions into psychedelia. It was a sudden transformation for a band that, til then, had been known for its energetic-yet-morose indie rock music. It was an admirable departure, but was it the beginning of something new and lasting? Well, with the release of Everwhere, looks like MM is truly morphing into a full-on headswirler of a band. Lush, eccentric, inspired, unexpected - that's how I would describe this latest set of songs. Like their brothers-in-oddity The Flaming Lips, MM seem determined to play with their sound as they take us to strange, surreal musical landscapes. Can't wait to find out what they come up with next. People who complain that this isn't the Modest Mouse of old - you're right, so give up your whining. That punky, immature trio is no more. What we have here is a rodent of a different color entirely, and I say let's go with it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!! Dec 1 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album on a whim. Not necessarily an uninformed whim, as I had previously bought the moon and antartica on a whim and loved it, but a whim nonetheless. I came across it browsing through the vinyl section of a local record store, and when I took it home and popped it onto ol' dusty (my name for the record player) and sat back with some buddies and listened to it, I found it to be one of the best albums I'd ever listened to. The thing that excited me most about the album was the Modest Mouse instrumental "The Air", it is one of the most relaxing songs to listen to ever, it's the kind of song that you'd lie back on the couch and listen to, and it harkens back to the greatness of Pink Floyd. Bouncy tunes like "Here it comes" and "so much beauty in dirt" are energetic, optimistic, and catchy. Basically, every song has its own personality, and they are all, as the name suggests, absolutely brilliant.
