At the rate they’re releasing new tracks, there won’t be anything new left to hear when Modest Mouse finally drops Strangers To Ourselves on 17 March. That’s a problem we’ll come to at a later time, but for now, I’ll be too busy dancing to their most recent teaser, “The Ground Walks, with Time in a Box”. While previous releases “Lampshades on Fire”, “Coyotes”, and “The Best Room” featured the band working well within the lane they helped construct, “The Ground Walks” finds the band going for something bigger, as much as it does harken back to their past discography. After an eight year hiatus, Isaac Brock and company know well enough that the ground, and time, waits for no one. Thankfully, they still have a lot left to say.
