“This is the part of me that needs medication…”
Could this be a song about depression? It’s pretty dang depressing. Though if you get through the slow beginning there’s a melodic middle part. Then it becomes depressing again. Depressing stuff aside, there’s good news in the world of people who love bad news. A new Modest Mouse album should be upon us next month, supposedly. They’ve been dangling that carrot in front of us for a few years now, but this time it’s totally official. There are even new singles on the radio! Strangers to Ourselves is due on March 17. They’ve been working on it since 2007, so it had better be spectacular. Or at least moderately good. Or, what the hell, let it be total crap, just release it already!
