Modest Mouse - Satillite Skin


Satellite Skin’s got this country feel – but not really. It sounds like a desert plain and a wide sky, and it sounds like Modest Mouse too – but unlike most Modest Mouse songs, it doesn’t sound pissed off. It lacks the sheer punch of jams like “Dashboard” or “Ocean Breathes Salty,” maybe just because it is less angry. The twangy guitar and delicate piano make me think sunset out west, but Isaac Brock’s snarl and Johnny Marr’s solos make me think late-night back east. Give "Satillite Skin" a listen.
