New Modest Mouse – “Guilty Cocker Spaniels” (Stereogum Premiere)

Modest Mouse’s No One’s First And You’re Next single “Satellite Skin” has been around awhile in various forms. Now it’s being pressed onto a proper 7″ you’ll be able to take home in May, which is why it popped up last week in highly listenable and viewable forms. When the single shows, “Satellite Skin” will be backed by another No One’s First track “Guilty Cocker Spaniels.” It’s not your typical B-Side table scraps: The 4-minute mouth-foamer finds Isaac Brock running full-speed with quick-wit lines about Facebook, fashionable clothes, and empty treadmills (and canvasses) as the sounds around him ebb and flow, building to a MM-style exorcism. In other words, it’s worth a listen.

As mentioned, “Guilty Cocker Spaniels” is the B-side to a “limited edition orange vinyl with an embossed sleeve and individually numbered to 4000″ vinyl pressing. It’ll be out 5/26. You can also get it via iTunes.
