They are back, in other words, and vigorously making up for lost time. For better and for worse, the album betrays no signs of its troubled birth. They might have spent eight years in the wilderness, but what they have delivered is…a Modest Mouse album, one that sounds like it could have been released five years ago. There are no new directions or tweaks to their approach. “Lampshades on Fire”, the first single, is a good example. … They’ve been a touring juggernaut for years now, and you can imagine many of these songs exploding live.
The band’s singer/guitarist Isaac Brock talked to NPR about the making of their first album in 8 years.
