I haven’t listened to Modest Mouse too much in my life but this song is awesome. Here’s what Teun had to say about it.


This was the song that really made me click with Modest Mouse. Isaac’s yelping way of singing, the initial slow buildup to a big payoff when the beat starts and the interesting metaphoric lyrics. I really feel like this is Modest Mouse condensed into one song, very unconventional, but o so good.”
