Fire It Up

It’s hard to believe these guys have been around for over 10 years. We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, Modest Mouse’s fifth album, will be released March 20th. However, thanks to the magic of the Internet many fans have got a few listens in already. Although there has been much talk about how different this album is from its predecessors, it still sounds like the Mouse I know and love. A nautical theme runs through the album, as does Isaac Brock’s usual blend of despair and sarcasm. The video for first single 'Dashboard' is swell:

As I’m sure everyone has already heard ‘Dashboard’, here are two other tracks from We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank:

Modest Mouse – People As Places As People
Modest Mouse – Fire It Up

- Andrew (the one in London)
