LISA MOLINARO, MUSICIAN

Posted by C Le Du on November 14, 2017 0 Comments

Lisa Molinaro is the lovely and utterly inspiring viola mastermind/multi-instrumentalist in Modest Mouse, which means many nights are spent sleeping on a moving bus “feeling like you might die,” she says. “I just don’t sleep well on the bus, so it takes about two weeks and then I’m completely exhausted." Back in Portland, Ore., in the cozy and eclectic home she shares with Isaac Brock and her “little boyfriend” Norson the cat, she’s got her nighttime rituals down. Warm, gracious and utterly charming—and still somehow mysterious at the same time—we've admired Lisa for years and were beyond excited to spend a winter afternoon in bed with her.

HOW DO YOU GET READY FOR BED?

I like to get spooky before bed. Lately I’ve been reading a book called The Enterprise of Death [by Jesse Bullington]. I’ve been reading it for 6 months now because I don’t want it to end! I like to listen to true crime podcasts, like murder podcasts. I’m addicted to Casefile, it’s so captivating. Or I’ll watch Twin Peaks or The X-Files on the TV (right now I’m re-watching season 4).


SLEEPTIME SCENTS?

All my favorite candles are from Catbird in New York. I light a little incense cone, and we have a few nebulizers. I use a blend from doTerra called Serenity.

WHAT DO YOU LISTEN TO BEFORE BED?

Really, really mellow stuff, like classical music. It can’t have a melody. As soon as it has a melody, I latch onto it, so it has to be really amorphous. I have a really great thunder App—Sleep Machine is the App, and it’s called “Distant Thunder"—and if you put it on real speakers, it’s really good. I’ll blend some thunder with some wind chimes, get some crickets in there...you can stack. I need comfort when I go to bed. For me, it’s nostalgic, the sounds of childhood, home in Florida. And thunder at night is really special. When you wake up to thunder it’s so good.

WHAT DO YOU WEAR TO BED?

I started buying white cotton nightgowns that look a little medieval, so I feel nice before I go to bed. But they aren’t necessarily nightgowns, just white cotton dresses. Sometimes if I’m feeling extra fancy I’ll press the nightgown before bed. I would love to get laid by a supernatural hunk!

SOMETHING YOU WOULD NEVER DO IN BED?

Eat! That's gross. I mean, not even if you're sick! Please move to the couch or something. The bed is not a space for food crumbs or chocolate wrappers. Not even a glass of wine at the bedside table! I'm a purist when it comes to this. Water only.

DREAM BEDROOM?

I recently read an issue of Vanity Fair and fell in love with Jeremy Irons's restored castle. This is pretty close to my ideal sleeping space.
