Eight years have passed since Modest Mouse put out a new album, and if the urgency and absurdity of the Pacific Northwest crew's new single is any indication, frontman Isaac Brock must be crawling out of his skin. It's a frenetic onslaught of paranoia, silliness, endlessly elastic rhythms and swirling guitars — all of which adds up to some classic Modest Mouse. "Ain't it hard feeling tired all the time?" Brock sings in the chorus, capturing both his restless state of mind and the feeling you get from listening to him zip through his every worry like a broken carnival ride.
