Modest Mouse headlined Sasquatch! on Sunday night, and debuted a couple new songs as part of their set. NPR streamed their concert, so the two new tunes, “Poison,” and “Lampshades On Fire,” are here, recorded from the soundboard thanks to YouTube user ChiefTragedy. Earlier this month we mentioned that Big Boi and Speakerboxxx/The Love Below producer Chris Carmouche were working with the band at Atlanta’s Stankonia Studios. I don’t think you can hear that in these two songs, but “Lampshades On Fire,” does remind me of Man Man — Isaac Brock called their album Six Demon Bag the best album of the ’00s in Rolling Stone a couple years back.
“Lampshades On Fire”
You can hear their entire set at NPR.
