Uncle Bunny Faces' finally rears its head

No telling if this bunny is an uncle...

Back in 2009 two uncirculated Modest Mouse demo tapes turned up on eBay titled "Tube-Fruit, All Smiles And Chocolate" and "Uncle Bunny Faces'". The first tape featured only Isaac, the second all three founding members.

When asked about the tapes after a show one night, Isaac mentioned that he viewed them not as home demos, but as albums, and that very few copies existed, almost all in the hands of friends.

While "Tube-Fruit, All Smiles And Chocolate" was quickly circulated amongst the trading community, "Uncle Bunny Faces'" was not. Until this past weekend that is, when a YouTube user, MusicIsFunn, uploaded the rough tracks to his/her channel. The tracks have since been uploaded to the Night on the Sun blog. If you're a fan of early (early!) Modest Mouse, they're worth a listen, but note the audio quality is poor at best.

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.

Interview from last year's Bridge School Benefit

The Bridge School News Network uploaded this video interview yesterday, taken at last year's Bridge School Benefit in October.

Hear Isaac, Eric, Jeremiah and Tom discuss some of their hobbies/down time activities and how, by my calculations, we should be getting a new album around the end of April (doubtful, but please prove me wrong).

Thanks to Matt for sending it in.
