We Were Dead …..

The new Modest Mouse is out and it’s number one on iTunes and number twelve on Amazon. Not bad for an indie rock band.

I’ve had the pleasure of listening to this record for the past six weeks and I love it. Issac Brock speaks to me.  He isn’t the greatest singer. He isn’t the greatest songwriter. But ever since the Gotham Gal and I went to see Modest Mouse play at Hammerstein several years ago, I have had this thing for Modest Mouse’s music. I love the way Isaac spits out the vocals like a machine gun.

The early reviews say there isn’t a single like Float On on this record. Surely Dashboard isn’t in that category, but Missed The Boat and People As Places sure are.
