Modest Mouse – Good News for People Who Love Bad News: They’ve got a real talent for making sad music that’s fun and witty. Usually sad music is just…sad. And thus kinda boring. Not so here. I guess that’s why the album name is so spot-on. This just in! “You Wasted Life! Why Wouldn’t You Waste the Afterlife?” and “We’ve Got One Chance to Get Everything Right.” How do those headlines grab you? Man. I think I need a cold one now.
