Good News for Everybody … or Adam Jumps on the Modest Mouse Bandwagon

So everyone seems to be going nuts over the new Modest Mouse album We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, partially because of the addition of ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, but mostly because it’s a great album. I’ll admit that I’ve never been a HUGE fan of the band, but know enough people who are fans to be exposed to their music a fair amount. Stray tracks will turn up on mix cds, an album will be in the car cd player when we get in to take a ride, someone shows me the cool new video, and so forth. And I always enjoy it, just never enough to invest any time outside of that in getting to know the band’s music. Having said that, I recently heard the first single off the new album, a great catchy song called “Dashboard,” and it’s caused me to reevaluate my apathetic stance towards Modest Mouse. It’s good enough that I am now prepared to become a convert. Maybe these stray tracks will do the same thing for you.
