RCRD LBL Freeload: Mimicking Birds, “Burning Stars”



We admit that we've been slacking on our Modest Mouse Geocities fan page pretty much since right around the time The Moon & Antarctica came out. Apparently—besides releasing a couple more Modest Mouse albums—frontman Isaac Brock started a record label and signed Mimicking Birds, a solo project turned three-piece band that...sound a lot like Modest Mouse (seriously, is Brock singing on this song? He may as well be). But you know what? It's been awhile. Maybe Mimicking Birds can step in and attract those that were put off by Brock's quiet-loud yelp, or those that are looking for something new that exists in the same musical universe. Or maybe they can just keep making Northwest folk jams while touring with MM and playing for approximately 5 kajillion people. Consider us cautiously interested.
