A modern classic that demands reappraisal - ‘The Lonesome Crowded West’ stands as the defacto Northwest indie-rock record, Subject to its own Pitchfork documentary, listed in numerous prestigious Best Albums Of The 90s lists & destined to be re-discovered by continuous generations.

Originally released in 1997, it not only helped shape the sound that came to be associated with the American Pacific Northwest but across these sprawling, wide-open 15 songs, Modest Mouse helped redefine what was possible for guitar music. ‘The Lonesome Crowded West’ has often been mimicked but its awesome open-hearted existentialism & manic ambition has rarely been matched.
