Night On The Sun EP reissue

Glacial Pace has announced that they are reissuing the 1999, Japanese only, Night On The Sun EP. The EP should not be confused with the slightly more common Night On The Sun 12".

As mentioned, the EP was originally only released in Japan during Modest Mouse's 1999 tour, only on CD, and limited to 700 copies. The reissue will be released on both CD and vinyl. It also seems that it will feature slightly altered artwork.

The 6 track EP is available now for pre-order, with shipping/delivery occurring closer to the July 29th release date.

In other reissue news, it has also been announced that a 12" test pressing of the Whenever You See Fit reissue, has been donated for a charity auction to Studio for Schools. A non profit organization that seeks to design and build music and film production studios in low-income schools. Find out more about the auction and the charity here.

Sharpen Your Teeth reissued with additional tracks

Glacial Pace has announced that Ugly Casanova's 2002 album Sharpen Your Teeth will be reissued this October on CD and LP.

The LP version has been out of print for a long time, and will include four additional tracks. Three of these tracks are available the other Ugly Casanova 7"s, the Magic Eye Singles compilation and the Diggin Holes single. The fourth track is an unreleased instrumental titled "They Devised a Plan to Fuck Forever".

It is presumed that with the addition of these four new tracks, the etching on the original vinyl will be removed. Glacial Pace is also doing a limited run of the vinyl on yellow / white wax.

Both the CD and LP are now available for pre-order from Glacial Pace's store.

Modest Mouse reissue Everywhere and his Nasty Parlour Tricks

In a very quiet and unexpected move, Glacial Pace added a reissue of Modest Mouse's 2001 EP Everywhere and his Nasty Parlour Tricks on both LP and CD to their online store last night. The EP was originally released on Epic, which Glacial Pace is still a connected to, if not still a subsidiary of.

The EP is already available for purchase, this is not a pre-order.

They've also added a special $200 Modest Mouse Vinyl Collection, which includes all 12 major Modest Mouse albums and EPs.

That really long BuzzFeed interview: More than a myth

Jon Premosch / BuzzFeed News

Back in late February, someone at BuzzFeed mentioned that they were 9 hours in to a 12 hour interview with Isaac Brock.

The interview has finally been published, and true to their word, it is really really long. Titled "Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock Wants To Be More Than A Myth", Jonathan Valania's interview covers many of the things we've heard in a lot of other interviewslately, but does a good job in going into a lot more detail.

Some features include more of the meaning behind Mexico/"Ansel" is explained, and Isaac talks about how he wants to make a music video on the edge of the Tillamook State Forest staring Crispin Glover for "Pistol". There's also mention of the follow up album to Strangers to Ourselves coming out in mid 2017 (wasn't it 2016 the other day...).

Valania also managed to get an interview with Isaac's mother Kris Adair, and she helps dispel what she feels are the four biggest myths about Isaac's upbringing: The White Panthers, the hippie commune, the Branch Davidians, and the shed where Modest Mouse began (includes a photo).

The interview also contains quotes from Jeremiah Green, Jim Fairchild, Lisa Molinaro, and Modest Mouse's touring manager Sean Hurley.

Lastly, there are some words from Eric Judy, who had originally agreed to participate in the interview via email, but in the end declined.

Strangers to Ourselves officially released

At long last, Modest Mouse's sixth studio album, Strangers to Ourselves, has officially been released.

The band will mark this event by performing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon later today, before closing out the rest of the week with two further shows in New York. Isaac will also be on SiriusXMU today between 5 and 7pm ET with Jenny Eliscu.

To celebrate the release, Modest Mouse is also offering 1250 free copies of their second single The Ground Walks, With Time in a Box along with any new orders of Strangers to Ourselves ordered from Glacial Pace. If you've already purchased the album, Glacial Pace is now also selling the single separately.

Isaac also gave an interview to the Wall Street Journal, published yesterday, in which he spoke about, among other things, his dislike for The Fruit That Ate Itself and indie labels.

Interstate 8 and Building Nothing out of Something being reissued on vinyl

Update, 3/9 14:29 PM PST: The details and dates are wrong. Expect a proper update from Glacial Pace at a later date.

A new album coming out in under two weeks is not stopping the Modest Mouse reissue machine.

An online store is listing entries for reissues of both the long out of print Interstate 8 EP and the singles collection Building Nothing out of Something.

Interstate 8 was originally only pressed on CD in limited quantities, this will be the first time it appears on vinyl. As with the original CD, it looks like it will include the "Live in Sunburst Montana" demo. Building Nothing out of Something was originally pressed on Vinyl, but has been out of print for over a decade now. Both releases will mark the end of the band's UP Recordings that have been out of print for so long.

They have the release date as April 21 of this year through Fat Possum Records, who are a distributor for Glacial Pace.

Modest Mouse reveal cover art and track count for Strangers to Ourselves

Modest Mouse have again taken to Instagram to reveal some news. This time the cover art for the upcoming album Strangers to Ourselves.

It's presumed that again this is an Alex MacLean photograph being used. Some of his portfolio lend well to the Modest Mouse theme of isolation and urban sprawl from earlier albums.

Glacial Pace has also put up the album for pre-order. It reveals that the album will consist of 15 tracks, while iTunes lists Lampshades on Fire as the second track on the album.

Glacial Pace is also listing a "vintage poster package", which includes the album, the two re-issue bonus 7 inches, and a signed Shepard Fairey tour poster from 2000, which is limited to 250 copies.

October / November News Roundup

It's been a busy period over on our end, and little bits of news have been creeping in all over, here's a roundup of news from the past few weeks.

Pat Graham's book came out a month ago today. If you haven't grabbed a copy yet, I strongly suggest it. I was able to go through it in detail a week ago and there are a lot amazing photographs as always, and some great behind the scenes stories of those early touring days.

Then there was the long awaited reissue of both This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About and The Lonesome Crowded West, these last two weeks. Along with the two 7"s that were released along side them, it allows us to attach studio sessions to these old songs. Although the White Lies, Yellow Teeth 7" also states what is perceived to be a typo of late 1996 when the album came out in April of that year. Can anyone actually remember if Long Drive was released April 1996?

The Vinyl reissues also seemed to get a number of limited coloured wax versions. Check the board for images and word on if any of these retailers are still selling copies.

Pitchfork.com reviewed both reissues and gave them a 8.5 and a 10 respectively. I wonder what's changed since that 6.8 in 1996...

Modest Mouse hit the stage again tonight in Houston, TX, followed by a performance tomorrow in Austin, as part of Fun Fun Fun Fest. These are to date, the last performances scheduled for the year.

Lastly, Isaac lent support to Bob Dingethal, earlier this week.

Reissues get release dates and accompanying 7

As we last reported, Modest Mouse's first two albums are being reissued on vinyl. Glacial Pace has now set dates and has begun taking pre-orders as of today, although Amazon and other places seemed to have jumped the gun a few days early, leading to a little confusion.

This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About will be released on October 28, while The Lonesome Crowded West will be released on November 4. Both albums are supposed to include their original vinyl only bonus tracks Edit The Sad Parts, A Manic Depressive Named Laughing Boy, and Baby Blue Sedan.

On those same days Glacial Pace will also be releasing acompanying 7"s of tracks recorded at the same time as the albums.

The first, White Lies, Yellow Teeth, will feature the A side of the same name, with the B side being Buttons To Push The Buttons. White Lies, Yellow Teeth had previously been released in 2002 on the compilation album The Giant Rock 'n Roll Swindle, although the version the band has uploaded to SoundCloud does appear to be slightly different. Buttons To Push The Buttons is more commonly known as a live track on the Interstate 8 EP, and lesser known as a studio track on 1998's Zum Audio Vol. 2 compilation.

The second 7", is what was previously thought to have been an Ugly Casanova track, Too Many Fiestas For Reuben, as it was performed live by them/Isaac solo a few times. Its B side, an alternative version of Cowboy Dan. Both tracks are said to have been recorded with Calvin Johnson in Olympia, which may be the November 12, 1994 session, but we should be able to confirm that when these come out.

While nothing completely brand new, this will be the first time some of these tracks have been released in studio form, and will at least make them easier to come by.

All four are available now for pre-order at Glacial Pace, as well as Amazon and a few other places.

Refresh your memory with White Lies, Yellow Teeth below.

Glacial Pace repressing older albums

It would appear that Isaac's Glacial Pace label has managed to secure the rights to all the original UP Records releases, as it has been pointed out that the albums are now being listed as "© Glacial Pace" in places like the Google Play store.

The band has even been selling copies of The Lonesome Crowded West on their past tour, featuring the Glacial Pace logo and similar packaging to the 2010 releases of the original K Records.

Board member Idioteque was able to speak to Isaac after a show and he said that he was "about to repress the fuck out of them." This should mean that copies of This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About, The Lonesome Crowded West, and Building Nothing Out Of Something should be easier to find, and will become available on vinyl again.

No word on the Interstate 8 EP, which was also released through UP Records. This may be the one that Isaac mentioned they'd lost the masters for, but my mind is slipping...

In other vinyl news, board admin Chief Tragedy, has pointed out that Urban Outfitters has begun selling coloured vinyl for Sad Sappy Sucker (yellow) and The Fruit That Ate Itself (green) online. This pressing seems to be dated April 15, and is appearing on other online stores (Barnes & Noble, Amazon, etc), but with no mention on the vinyl being coloured. In case you're wanting to hold out to see if this pressing becomes more common, as the consensus seems to be that Urban Outfitters is not a great place to buy vinyl online.

Inside the home of Isaac Brock and Glacial Pace, plus a new song

Isaac Brock's house (and Glacial Pace headquarters) are featured in Season II, Episode 5 of "Don't Move Here".

Isaac gives a tour of his home/studio, discusses his love of taxidermy, some home renovation tips, the bands that he's signing to Glacial Pace, and how the label came to be.

The episode ends with a short, partial performance from Modest Mouse, that features an as of yet, unreleased song. No mention though if this song is old or a new one being worked on for an upcoming album. Hopefully more will be cleared up when the band starts their short tour next month, should this song make its way onto set lists.

Morning Teleportation: Expanding Anyway

The Isaac Brock/Clay Jones produced Expanding Anyway, the debut album from Morning Teleportation, is out today through Glacial Pace Recordings. Glacial Pace is also offering free downloads of the tracks "Expanding Anyway" and "Foreign Planes" through their site (just add the tracks to your cart and checkout, note the price for those two tracks is $0.00).

Morning Teleportation formed in 2005 when Bowling Green, KY natives and lifelong friends Travis Goodwin (keyboards), Tres Coker (drums), and Paul Wilkerson (bass) met up with Chicago transplant Tiger Merritt (vocals/guitar), who had just moved to their hometown for college. From the beginning the band has built up a roller coaster of tumultuous rock 'n roll, featuring analog synths, heartfelt vocals, and sudden changes woven through psychedelia, electronica, and deep-space pickin' n' grinnin'. They've spent most of the past year on the road playing for enthusiastic crowds at Bonnaroo and Sasquatch and supporting the likes of The Flaming Lips, Cage The Elephant, and Modest Mouse.

If you like what you hear, the album is available in all formats from the Glacial Pace Store, or if you feel like supporting Interstate-8, through Amazon, Insound or iTunes.
