Strangers To Ourselves
it's been 8 years but finally, isaac brock & co return with their 6th album & the influential indie rock outfit are sounding more like arcade fire than arcade fire themselves! a highly addictive genre-hopping slice of inventiveness.
"Brilliantly deranged first album in eight years from the alt-rock heroes...From grizzled, slap-bass disco freakouts (‘The Ground Walks, With Time In A Box’) to campfire lullabies (‘God Is An Indian And You’re An Asshole’) it's an impressively unpredictable record that veers down wildly different paths, in ways no previous Modest Mouse album has dared. Brock’s lyrics remain the same: dense thickets of imagery & introspection but otherwise 'Strangers...' is an adventurous reinvention" 7/10 - nme.
