Modest Mouse start another decade with The Moon and Antarctica, vinyl edition

Modest Mouse are doing the same thing at the start of this decade as they did at the start of the 2000s: releasing The Moon and Antarctica. Except that this decade gets a fancy-pants, 10th-anniversary-edition, vinyl reissue of the album!

Vinyl copies of the album, which made it to #51 on our decade list, have been out-of-print and extremely hard to find for years, and Modest Mouse figured they could celebrate a decade of The Moon and Antarctica by not making their fans pay a bunch of money just to hear the album at 33 RPMs. So, Isaac Brock and co. took their major-label debut, critical-darling third album and remastered it, and pet it, and restored the original artwork, and caressed it, and replicated the original “infinite-lock-groove” found on the original vinyl copies, and loved it, and got it all pretty for an April 17 release date.

Fans can pre-order the reissue at Modest Mouse’s modest website.
