We got to talking about music, and after talking about music tastes, he turned me on to Modest Mouse. It was a great tip, and I've been listening to "Good News For People Who Like Bad News" since May.
What a cool way to find out about a band. Well, if you get the chance you should definitely listen to some of their older albums:
1. this is a long drive for someone with nothing to think about
2. lonesome crowded west
3. everywhere and his nasty parlor tricks
These are the 3 I would reccomend. Pick up all their albums if you can, but if I had to suggest a few, these would be it.
