Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock Presents: Mimicking Birds


It can be hard to navigate through the “new band” glut, but Isaac Brock has lent us a hand in cutting through the clutter: the Modest Mouse frontman took fellow northwest indie act Mimicking Birds under his wing (pun totes unintended) by co-producing and releasing their new self-titled debut LP for his very own label, Glacial Pace.

In short, fans of Bon Iver won’t regret giving these guys a spin: Mimicking Birds are a Portland, Oregon based trio helmed by equally intense/upfront singer-songwriter Nate Lacy. Brock has always had a way of letting the songs speak for themselves and — based on the few sparsely-adorned Mimicking Birds tunes I’ve heard — his reputation is fully intact in that respect.
