Modest Mouse have been playing this chipper No One’s First And You’re Next single live, and two days ago started streaming it, and they’re officially wasting no time getting out this video. It’s directed by Tool collaborator Kevin Willis, naturally, and taps that band’s predilection toward stop-motion fun, albeit more Lord Of The Rings-styled anthropomorphic tree(house)s than Jacob’s Ladder-styled violent twitchery. Also it features a Tool-esque muted color palette, until the little druid kid secures the Easter eggs and fastens them into the alien’s eye sockets so that he can birth a flock of delicious birds. But I mean, obviously.
In addition to appearing on No One’s First And You’re Next, “Satellite Skin” is the A-side to a “limited edition orange vinyl with an embossed sleeve and individually numbered to 4000″ vinyl pressing. It’s backed by another new one, “Guilty Cocker Spaniels,” which you’ll be able to hear right here on Monday.
