Update, 3/10 15:47 PM PST: Adding another down below from Newsweek.

Here's just a list of three interviews that have come out in the past few days. I've been thinking that seeing as how there are probably going to be a lot of these in the coming weeks, that if an interview contains something new I'll post about it separately, otherwise I'll do one or two posts a week just to summarize the press for the week. I won't bother posting links to articles that just rehash information from other interviews. "This whole record has been an exercise in making more work than necessary" talks to Modest Mouse. The complete article we had snippets from yesterday. It covers the recording process of Strangers to Ourselves, Isaac producing, picking set lists, and as mentioned yesterday, a potential follow up to this album coming out sooner than later.

Rolling Stone: Modest Mouse on the Chaotic Sessions for First LP in Eight Years." Isaac talks about the studio they built, a bit more on Eric, working with Big Boi and Krist Novoselic, and why that didn't work out.

NPR: "Making Records Is 'Not A Race' For Modest Mouse." This one is an audio interview (also embedded below), in which Isaac talks about delays, playing too many shows, and not being a fan of interviews.

Newsweek: "Q&A: Modest Mouse Frontman on Why the New Album Took Eight Years." Covers a lot of things the others talk about, but Isaac mentions that there are only about five songs left to do for another album.
