Listen: Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse) – “Dead End Job At The Dead Letter Office”

By ; July 6, 2011 at 2:18 PM 

This is a pretty special track for Modest Mouse fans out there. This Isaac Brock song comes from 1993 – the year Modest Mouse formed! It’s being billed as Isaac Brock, though it might as well be Modest Mouse since drummer Jeremiah Green plays on it, and the guitarist is Dann Gallucci, who has never been in Modest Mouse, but that makes up a 3-piece band, right?

Anyway, the song has been unearthed to feature on the upcoming 3-disc charity album Live From Nowhere Near You, Vol. 2, a “benefit concept CD” which will go to Outside In, an organisation that aids the homeless youth of Portland, OR, and features new and rare tracks from North Western musicians.

Check out “Dead End Job At The Dead Letter Office,” which sounds like it easily could have come off of Building Nothing Out Of Something, and below that get more details on Live From Nowhere Near You, Vol. 2.

Live From Nowhere Near You, Vol. 2 will be released on July 19th through Greyday Records. Here’s the participating artists:
