Alright, lets do this.. we’re going to look back on some of my favourite albums of 2015. The criteria is this.. the record had to come out in 2015 and I had to love it.. that’s it..
Day 10 – Record 10
MODEST MOUSE – STRANGERS TO OURSELVES
Strangers to Ourselves is the 6th studio record from Modest Mouse and it was a LONG TIME COMING! 8 years in fact. 8 YEARS!!! Was it ever worth the wait though.
Modest Mouse are, in my book, one of the most underrated bands of all time, not just in recent memory. Their music is truly infectious, it’s unique, it’s exciting.. it’s FUN!! They have so much fun with what they’re doing. You hear it in the music, you see it in the videos and live shows.. hell even the album cover is a fun cool overhead picture of a trailer park.
My favourite thing about the most humble of rodents is their ability to name songs and records.. “We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank”, “Good News For People Who Love Bad News”, “The Good Times Are Killing Me” and that didn’t stop on the new album.. “The Ground Walks, With Time In A Box”, “God Is An Indian And You’re An Asshole”.. come on! Awesome..
The records first single was released in December of 2014, the record came out in March and Im still obsessed with it. This album has legs as they say.. lets get to some tunes shall we?
