  1. Anybody here Modest Mouse fans? They’ve just released a new single and are finally releasing a new album next month. Lyric-wise it’s pretty boring and repetitive for MM, but the instrumentation is cool. A little bit poppier but that’s not the biggest issue to me, I haven’t been a fan of the production post-Strangers To Ourselves. Always felt cluttered yet way too polished. I haven’t been that engaged in the singles they’ve been releasing lately either, but Poison The Well and Ice Cream Party were cool.
  2. https://www.instagram.com/tv/COX4h_vnuUj/?igshid=1qzl6r0nf5nji They’re teasing again... Heard it could be a documentary but who knows. The band’s profile picture is now black too.
  3. Haven’t been here in a while to know what’s going on but I would die for Motion City Soundtrack.
  4. Not gonna lie, it’s probably one of my favorite Tom songs in a long time. Very catchy and the EDM sections don’t go overboard.
  5. Definitely agree that Severance is one of MCS’s best songs. I love Making Moves and wish it was officially on iTunes as I just have a bootleg of it for now. Major Leagues is pretty underrated as well.
  6. If you guys missed the livestream on IG, Mark mentioned that there’s a new Fender signature model in the works.
  7. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if Matt didn’t entirely record all the guitar parts on NINE. Not saying he didn’t at all because you know when Matt shows up on guitar based on his playing style, but considering how much songwriters/producers that were collaborating with blink, it wouldn’t be odd if one of them recorded a lick or two. There was that Heaven jam that we all thought was totally Matt and then it ended up being one of Travis’ friends. Matt’s not even credited on Happy Days and that also sounded like something he would probably play. I’m pretty sure the guitars on Cali/Cali DL
  8. Feldy is such a tease. I don’t think we got much of a preview for anything during the NINE sessions except for the boxing video.
  9. I was in band class around 8th grade and my teacher was showing some music videos from bands like The Strokes, Matchbox Twenty, and then Motion City Soundtrack. He showed us “A Lifeless Ordinary (Need A Little Help)” to discuss the bridge where Justin’s vocals overlap. I thought it was the coolest thing (still do) so I was immediately hooked by them and that song is still one of my top 5 MCS songs. It was like 2013 at the time so Go was out by then but I think MDL had more success so YouTube just kept recommending me the singles. Some of my favorite all-time favorite MCS tracks are ALO(NALH),
  10. I’ve been listening to TWIYTC this morning and it has always been my favorite off Go. Happy Anniversary is also one of the top tier tracks from that album and I always shift back and forth on which version I like. I usually prefer this acoustic performance but the album version gives me some heavy Placebo vibes (another favorite band of mine) and it’s pretty haunting as it was intended to be.
  11. I just decided to listen to Go again and I don’t know why I ranked it so low. I always enjoyed most of the songs, but I felt like the album didn’t quite get there exactly. Maybe it was because I was spoiled by MDL and I suppose the other records as well (didn’t get into them until like 2013/2014). The guitars are there and Justin’s voice is still going strong from the last album (he was pretty much straining his voice in some songs like Bottom Feeder and TWIYTC), but I always felt like the entire album could’ve kicked it up a notch. There are some high points in experimentation like you me
  12. I think this would be my ranking of their albums: 1. My Dinosaur Life 2. I Am The Movie 3. Even If It Kills Me 4. Commit This To Memory 5. Go/Panic Stations This felt very dirty to do lol, but I think this is about right. I had to look at the tracklists of each of the albums from 3-6 to see which ones I like more. I used to not like CTTM that much but after binging MCS for a while I’ve grown to like the album a lot more. I can see why people rank it as their magnum opus and despite being their sophomore album, it seems to incorporate just the right amount of all t
  13. I know some blink fans expected Matt to somewhat emulate a personality similar to Tom and/or the rest of the band when he joined but anyone who is an actual fan of Matt knows he’s a complete weirdo, so his IG posts aren’t concerning at all (unless there’s actual evidence that would be). However, regarding his last public appearance along with info of him not being entirely sober anymore, it’s a bit concerning. Can’t say what he’s up to now to have everybody freaking out about his well-being on his IG before the whole “Matt wasn’t on this” news broke out.
  14. Was wondering why some were complaining about that, but doesn’t he already do that? I swear I’ve seen him do it before and he types random shit all the time with all those hashtags lol.
  15. Don’t mean to be a conspiracy theorist, but to add the conversation Matt just looks so off compared to Mark and Travis. I know the interviewers could give less of a shit so he’s probably bored but he isn’t this fidgety in interviews. I was worried when I saw that iHeartRadio show because he looked like he gained a large amount of weight in a very short time, so I assumed it was due to alcohol possibly. I looked through some pictures of him during the Enema tour and he wasn’t as skinny as he was around 2018 but he didn’t look completely bloated as he did at the iHeartRadio show. With everyone’s
