Modest Mouse – “Leave A Light On”

Modest Mouse – “Leave A Light On”

Earlier this month Modest Mouse announced their first album in six years, The Golden Casket, and shared its lead single “We Are Between.” It was a very good Modest Mouse song, and so is the album’s second single. Out today, “Leave A Light On” is sort of like Isaac Brock’s answer to Wilco’s kosmiche odyssey “Spiders (Kidsmoke),” with a chorus that brings out the best in Modest Mouse’s radio-era sound. There is some sick organ work and this promise from Brock: “I’ll leave the light on for you.”

Modest Mouse have also announced a bunch of tour dates, including some with Future Islands. And Brock contributed thoughts on “Subterranean Homesick Blues” to our behemoth Bob Dylan birthday feature. Hear “Leave A Light On” and see the dates below.
