New Modest Mouse, "Whale Song"
I had a feeling we'd be seeing this one before the end of the week. As we've been talking about, Modest Mouse is releasing a b-sides album entitled No One's First And You're Next this August. In the lead-up to the collection hitting stores, the band has been giving us, the fans, special edition 7" singles. "Whale Song" is the second track off of the second and most recent single, "Autumn Beds," and it packs quite a punch. Do you remember those really rowdy and explosive guys from Lonesome Crowded West? I think they're back, or at least seem to rejoin us for this one song. Check it out at your leisure over at Stereogum. The "Autumn Beds" single is out June 23rd (this coming Tuesday).
