a band with lyrics full of ironies and paradoxes such as "night on the sun" , "good times are killing me" however they do have an innovative sound and highly clever lyrics with sweet one liners for those 16 year old bloggers. However they are not indie. at least not anymore. they are signed to Sony Bmg music. they are a main stream band however this isn't to say anything bad about their high quality.
modest mouse is a great band man, I'm kind of sad that their next album will carry more of a commercial anxiety. like float on.
