The last Modest Mouse album was ‘Golden Casket Vol.1’ and they were putting out Vol.2 asap.

That was 3.5 years ago. Nothing. Really dumb way to name your album imo.

Would you say Dark Side of The Moon is barely an album? Or Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band?

No because they are 39 and 42 minutes long. 31 minutes is one minute over EP length.

who gives a fuck if it's an ep or an album? shitty music is shitty music, whether it's short or long.

I would rather have 8 good tracks than 12 with 4 that were skippable. Oceania has so much filler. That being said, I don’t think we are getting 8 good tracks. Anyways I am not buying it no matter what. I gave their last three albums to Goodwill. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me, fool me thrice, FU Billy

ARE YOU SURE YOU’RE READY/’DAY FOR NIGHT’/ SP ALBUM UPDATE
September 8, 2018


Occasional, nay consistent, braggart that I am, I’m sometimes prone to overpromising what lay in Santa’s Magic Bag; as I did when I said all songs were written. This *was true, in the sense that at the moment we started the process of ‘MTAE’ (MONUMENTS TO AN ELEGY, forthwith) I had a good old pile of USDA-approved riffs, choruses, and blind alley sad-songs. Enter Herr Howard, and you know the rest: lots of teeth ringing about modern music et al, and the snooze inducing process of repeating what I already knew how to do; albeit faster, brighter, and with ‘more lift’.



So here we go again, and yes, I’ve got plenty ‘o tuneage (to paraphrase that Teutonic hippie I used to live with), but do I have the heart to recast what I already despise; which to be clear is the process of stripping back intellect to reveal the pure essence of hook, hook, hook…



Some may cry boring, but I call it being savvy in an unsophisticated world, for without a new, creative engine to drive SP-Beyond, what’s the gosh-darned point of trying to reach the kidz? (At this point)…



And though I think you’ll find MTAE fab (that is if you are ready for change, or you like a good song above an indulgent one, or you’re not like my friend Kanako-san who thinks she’s heard all I’d have to offer), I’m planning on upping the game even higher with this next fella. By engaging in what I behind the scenes would call an Adore-like process; i.e. where the production and song marry as one from the start; and NOT in some process of reverse engineering ;where songs not meant to be tenderized are pummeled and reconstituted with some digital hammer until crystalline clear.



Which you see makes me laugh, because I started doing that alt-process right around the time that process became ubiquitous in pop/rap/blah blah music. So yes, I’m saying kindly I was there long ago and abandoned it simply because it f’d up a good thing (or that thing-beast that existed circa 1990-1997).



So yeah, I’m back with beats and blips, but faint not ye lovers of noise, for the guitar will be with us along the way. Because thought I drop the A-door verbage, my plan is something kinetic and shoe gazery; or SD-y for you braggarts.



Will it work? Who knows? And shall it ******* those songs already written? Some. But most will be fresh-hewn, because in that world the beat is king, as is the gizmo you run the beat through and so on.



At least I’ve still got all the old gear no matter which way we go…



W.P.C.

One is clear: There won't be any dreamy guitar interplay cause the songs aren,t long enuff.
A short solo here or there is possible.
Seems there will be alot of dry straight out rock. ( more solara style than silvery)

Next up from the brothan4al university of logic: there are no mountains in Belgium. Why Is that, you say? Easy. The country is much too small for it.

Looks disappointing. A rushed effort to capitalise on the tour. Billy is so prolific he's produced an album 31 minutes long.

And so far 8 minutes of this 31 minute album (Silvery and Solara) totally fucking sucks ass. So that means there's only 23 minutes remaining.

this sucks

I don't want to criticize again. But they are talking about the "Shiny And Oh So Bright" TOUR gear...

Speak into the mike, Jeff!

You guys, seriously, of all the things that will most likely make this album bad, a short duration will literally the least of the problems. An album that leaves you wanting more is usually a great album.

Pretty sure i won't even make it through the whole thing

That's unfair!
I'm sure it's that short because Corgan wants to release the record with 45 speed on vinyl.
For better sound quality in the inner grooves...

31 minutes is too long for optimal sound on 45 though

I've already explained all of this. MCIS SD and PI were written by BORIS. Then they got bored and went on to create Amplifier Worship and Flood, leaving b0lliam to carry on with Adore and Makeena.
