Man, I have no many idea how many hours I spent at the piano figuring out how to play that when I was younger. Haven’t played it much in a while but when I put my fingers to the keys a bunch of it comes back to me.

This happened to me at the end of May when Built to Spill came to Brooklyn. I played Doug Martsch’s guitar. I will never forget that. It was an amazing evening.

RE: “On Melancholy Hill” – to your point about not being sure whether it’s happy or sad, I’ll paint a picture for you. I was listening to the song on a hammock by the lake at summer camp as a counselor a few years back now, waiting for the girl I was with to meet me for a few hours at night. I was really excited to see her again, obviously, as this was the start of something new, but also in the back of my mind I was worried it would end when the summer did or shortly thereafter (which it kind of did). So that experience fits the song for me, and in essence my answer would be a tinge of both.

“I Know What Love Isn’t” and the 2nd “Every Little Hair Knows Your Name” could and should probably easily be on this list.

They also played a different B-side (not “Beneath the Dunes”) in Philly on Thursday night, but I don’t see that popping up anywhere. I also liked it more than this one.

A friend of mine told me about and had me listen to Lonesome Crowded West literally the day after I heard “Float On” for the first time. I was a sophomore in high school and had never heard of Modest Mouse before. I liked “Float On” and was intrigued by the band, but was honestly scared when I first listened to “Teeth Like God’s Shoeshine.” 10 years later, I have every Modest Mouse song ever released and I like both sides of Modest Mouse, poppy/slow and abstract/abrasive. Good News is a very good album.
It’s way past time that their next full-length comes out, and I’m still excited for it.

Last note: “Float On” sounds much better in context on Good News than it does just as a song on shuffle.

I’m scared.

YES (to your question).

I don’t know what’s more surprising – the fact that SSPU already are releasing a greatest hits album, or that this new track is less than 5 minutes long.

I’ll preface this by saying I really enjoy Congratulations for the most part, but for this album it sounds like there are a few moments that are worth savoring but otherwise it does sound meandering and unsatisfying. This could change with more listens, but honestly what I’ve heard doesn’t really encourage me to go back and listen to any or most of it again. If this is the music they want to make, who am I to say not to, but this album just doesn’t really connect with me. Sorry, MGMT.
