Released:
Label: Epic
Modest Mouse's first full album in eight years picks up Isaac Brock's sour common-man's existentialism more or less where it left off: equal parts sardonic melancholy (the title track; the loping acoustic ditty "God Is an Indian and You're an Asshole") and prickly, horn-spiked dance-rock ("The Ground Walks, with Time in a Box"; "Lampshades on Fire," which gives a jaunty jolt to 2004's "The World at Large"). The 2015 version of Modest Mouse doesn't have the frazzled punk attack of previous versions, but Brock's grumpy, tender pessimism remains intact.
