A whole CD of Modest Mouse covers? At first this may seem a little strange, until you realize that the band releasing the CD is Sun Kil Moon, fronted by former Red House Painter Mark Kozelek. Kozelek is no stranger when it comes to taking songs by other artists and making them his own. He's stripped down songs by Paul McCartney, The Cars, and Kiss in the past. His lone solo LP is even an entire set of Scott-era AC/DC covers.

So, after hearing all of this, the fact that this record exists makes more sense. It's fascination to hear the often zaney Modest Mouse arrangements stripped down to Kozelek and his acoustic guitar. He arranges the songs beautifully, and the fact that he has one of the best voices in modern music doesn't hurt either.

Highlights include "Tiny Cities Made of Ashes" and "Ocean Breathes Salty".
