Modest Mouse showed off some brand new music this weekend. The Sasquatch! headliners set free a few tracks from their upcoming sixth album, which is being produced by Big Boi. It’s hard to tell whether or not Sir Lucious Left Foot has had his hands on these tracks. “Poison” revisits the raw musical power the group is known for and sounds like it could have been cut from the band’s debut release This is a Long Drive For Someone With Nothing to Think About. Isaac Brock’s screeching vocals stitch together driving guitar riffs and pounding drums. The other new track, “Lampshades on Fire” explores a different arena with its long, winding instrumentals and super-catchy chorus.
Both songs are available for stream below. Their whole Sasquatch! performance is available for stream over at NPR.
