Song of the Day: Modest Mouse, "Dashboard"

Song of the Day: Modest Mouse, "Dashboard"

Poor Modest Mouse. After more than 10 years of toil on the indie-rock scene, the band scored a hit single — 2004's "Float On" — and became the insta-example used in every argument about musical sellouts. But really, it was just a case of a catchy song catching on in an unexpected way.

Now, the well-respected but oft-maligned band is getting its revenge, because Modest Mouse's new album, We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, is getting even better reviews than I expected. I'll admit that I was skeptical: Though I wasn't shouting "sellout," I just didn't really dig Good News For People Who Love Bad News, so I wasn't running out to buy this one. Then I heard "Dashboard," one of the choicer tracks off the new album, and man, does it rock. To listen,

I was really disappointed with their last album, but maybe because Wolf Parade were soooo great compared to it. This song is excellent though! Looks like they're back with good tunes!

I have this album and love it! I was able to get a copy early and it is amazing! I never worry too much about who sells out. My motto is: They created it, I have no say in what they produce or who or how they choose to sell it so why should i get upset?

Modest Mouse is awesome, I love a band that you can put their entire CD on and not have to skip past half the songs cause they're crap.
