After an eight year hiatus, freak rock legends Modest Mouse
are back with their newest album Stranger To Ourselves
, but if their performance of "Lampshades on Fire" on the Tonight Show
is any indication, the only people they should be strangers to are listeners who only discovered the band thanks to Good News for People Who Love Bad News
. The raw, electric performance is a throwback to the band's noiser, more lo-fi years pre-The Moon & Antarctica
, and it's not hard to imagine that old-school Modest Mouse fans are pleased by this nod to their roots.
