*36 Things I learned (here)


01 // Music for the Masses

17 March 2015


After their 7 year hiatus Modest Mouse is finally back with a new album called Strangers to Ourselves . They've shared a few of the songs off the new album such as "Lampshades on Fire" , my personal fave "Coyotes" , "The Best Room" , "Of Course We Know" and "The Ground Walks, With Time In A Box". I'm anxious to listen to the rest of the album and finally have Modest Mouse back on the road and I hear there's even talks about another record being release after this one - fingers crossed for that one. For now lets enjoy Strangers to Ourselves .
