传记

Modest Mouse是一支拥有平常心的绅士乐队。没有露骨的愤怒,优美的旋律和漫不经心的嗓音下,Modest Mouse几乎天真地用嘲讽的话语和深层的处世哲学阐述着非常摇滚的内容。并不是任何人都愿意用直白的态度来表明立场,而这正是Modest Mouse的风格。

  Modest Mouse本身具有一种天生的亲和力,简单的音乐中融合着其它许多类型的音乐,从Post-Fugazi的Emo-core到Pixies和 Pavement甚至早期的Talking Heads。Pixies的歌曲结构一直是乐队的主要特点,还有非常少的爆发片段都非常像Pixies,总体听起来又有些像轻型的Pavement。除去上述较明确的音乐影响外,Modest Mouse本身其实就是一个怪胎,60年代的节奏布鲁斯和新浪潮的No Wave之声竟然会被融合在一起,用管弦乐模式作为内在驱动力,这还不算“犹抱琵琶半遮面”的生涩Solo(其实这也是故意的)。

  这种风格在同时期的摇滚乐队中是极为罕见的,究其原因,Modest Mouse流行/摇滚的独立姿态并不是刻意追求一贯的DIY精神,音乐细致富有张力,在足够的空间感下形式紧凑,表现方法随意又不失谨慎严密。可以说,他们的音乐体现了摇滚的另一种境界,也可以说是一种极端——纯粹的唯美主义。任何极端总是有一定的弊端,“不够摇滚”于是就成为了Modest Mouse最大的缺点(这恐怕还是我一厢情愿的主观臆断,也可以说是不良习惯)。历史上不够“摇滚”却摇得厉害的乐队不胜枚举,Jimi Hendrix、Rush、Pink Floyd、R.E.M.……审美标准的不同的结果在此时就非常明显了,Modest Mouse的评语中绝对没有一丝一毫“重量”感,却稳稳地和Ween一起占据着校园排行榜。

    @imdrunksfuck: I'm sorry to hear that. It's true they've changed, but you shouldn't let it effect your life so negatively. The old albums will always be there for you, regardless. :)

    Notably, the live shows I've attended, the new songs DO have that certain... thing. Some unexplained energy. It's still different from the old records, but it convinced me that they still have it in them. Also, I don't give a fuck that they sold out. I love them anyway. There is no denying that they sold out. They did! I'm just gonna say it. BUT I DON'T CARE. I love them. They deserve it. They don't owe us anything.

    I sound like an obsessed fan-boy, but this is how I really feel. I am in LOVE with old Modest Mouse. Goddamn it.

    But old MM is more than just good music. It is so much more depth and passion and soul. I can connect with it on a deeper, more personal level than almost all other music. At the risk of sounding like an unbearable douche and snob: But holy fucking shit, it's art in its highest form. There is something very very VERY valuable in old Modest Mouse that I cannot explain. And past that "Good News" point, it's gone. And I don't understand it. I've tried and tried and tried to understand it, to find it. It doesn't make any sense. They are using many of the same sounds, Isaac still uses clever wordplay that utilizes paradoxes and metaphors, the songs can sound amazing as hell and even stir some emotions, but that THING that magical THING is totally gone. It's present in everything before Good News. I am constantly amazed that it is present even in shitty early recordings when they were 16 or whatever, on Tube Fruit, etc.

    Eh, I'm kind of tired of this whole argument that "bands evolve", therefore MM is still good. There are plenty of bands who have drastically evolved their style over the years, but remained relatively at the same level of greatness across their discography (Fugazi, The Flaming Lips). The thing that bothers me about Modest Mouse is that there is a clear-cut POINT where their music stops being truly GREAT. Modest Mouse lost something very vital between Everywhere & His Nasty Parlor Tricks and Good News for People Who Love Bad News. The strangest, most frustrating thing is that this quality, this THING is unquantifiable and almost impossible to explain. It's not production values or major labels, because the Moon & Antarctica disproves that. (NOTE: The difference between old and new Modest Mouse is HUGE, but that doesn't mean that new MM is bad music. It is good music. I like new MM.)
