Can it be? Are “Poison” and “Lampshades” products of the mysterious, Big Boi-produced Modest Mouse record in the works? Well, there’s nothing overtly Big Boi-ish about the tracks, but the energetic, bumping, twangy and (whew, thankfully) old-school Modest Mouse sound does seem to fit in with Big Boi’s description of the joint effort as a “hodgepodge of funkiness.”

Modest Mouse performed “Poison” and “Lampshades” live at Washington’s Sasquatch! Music Festival this past weekend, and thanks to some inspired Youtube citizen journalism, user ChiefTragedy made them available in soundboard-quality audio today. Check ‘em out! (via TwentyFourBit)
