Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock has released a cover of the Motown classic “I Heard It Through the Grapevine.”
The rendition was recorded for the soundtrack to a new documentary called Claydream, which tells the story of Will Vinton, the so-called “Father of Claymation.”
As for what all these things have to do with each other, Vinton created The California Raisins, a group of anthropomorphic dried grapes that revitalized “I Heard It Through the Grape Vine” in the ’80s by singing it in a series of popular commercials. The ’80s! What a time!
Modest Mouse, meanwhile, released their latest album, The Golden Casket, in 2021. They launch a North American tour August 19 with a hometown show in Portland.
