Mixtape Update: Bukowski by Modest Mouse

Listen to Blake and Jake discuss the song, and their views on the author at the 48:00 mark below!

The newest addition to the Colombia House Party mixtape is Bukowski by Modest Mouse. The song, named after its subject, the poet and novelist Charles Bukowski, explores the conflict between appreciating the art but disapproving of the general nastiness present in the author's work.

It’s a conflict personal to Blake & Jake, and they discuss the aura and appeal of Bukowski’s novels, while reflecting on how the song's memorable chorus played a role in changing their perspectives and allowing them to grow. Listen to the song, which slides into the 26th spot on the playlist below, then tune back in to the latest episode of Columbia House Party.
