Modest Mouse formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington and has become, over the past two decades, the indie rock gold standard: One of the few bands capable of achieving massive popularity without sacrificing their longtime fans.
MATTRESS is a hybrid of synth pathos and soul shouting. A solo project born of struggle and heavy thoughts. Something like Iggy Pop and Tom Jones mixed with Kraftwerk and Suicide. Drum machines rattle basslines swoop the voice croons about survival, lost dreams and pains. Rex Marshall is from the sinful city of Las Vegas, Nevada. MATTRESS is not easy listening.
