Last week, we told you about Big Boi’s odd-couple paring with Modest Mouse. Today, Sir Lucious Left Foot himself shared more details about the project with MTV. “We’re all musicians and producers and artists, and it’s just like a big-ass brainstorm, a brain-stormin’, tsunami, typhoon, tectonic-plates-movin’ kind of thing,” says Big Boi. “We do all types of music, so to get the chance to jam with a jammin’-ass band, I knew it was going to be cool. We had a vibe too. We made a couple of records that are just jamming. It’s a hodgepodge of funkiness.”

While that doesn’t tell us much about what the potential songs will sound like (Then again, who can turn their nose up at “a hodgepodge of funkiness?), Big Boi goes on to assure, “The fans don’t have to worry. There’s nothing like, ‘Oh, Modest Mouse, there’s some rapping going on the album!’ If there needs to be some rapping on there, I will destroy it, but right now, we’re just really marinating with the music to see where everything’s going to go. ... Just know this mother——er is jamming, man. Believe me.”

No word yet on a potential release date, but our attention has certainly be caught.
