Sharpen Your Teeth
Released: May 2002
Label: Sub Pop Records
Free from his lead role in Modest Mouse, Isaac Brock hides behind fictional character Edgar Graham, aka Ugly Casanova, whom he initially claimed was the composer of this one-off project's songs. In truth, Sharpen Your Teeth is a collaboration between Brock and fellow indie rockers Tim Rutili (Califone), Pall Jenkins, John Orth and Brian Deck. It has the unmistakable urgency that shudders through Brock's vocals and the paranoid musings he projects into M.M.'s material, but his bandmates massage those tendencies with acoustic guitar and subtle instrumentation that makes for a haunting listen.
