EDITORS’ NOTES

After an eight-year break between albums, Modest Mouse return with a wonderfully diverse effort that's well worth the wait. Marked by haunting arrangements and stunning detail, Strangers to Ourselves finds founding frontman (and chief songwriter) Isaac Brock at his most commanding—no matter the approach. While the experimental dance tune “Pistol (A. Cunanan, Miami, FL. 1996)” features stuttering rhythms and a gooey, pitched-down vocal performance, early fans will relish the rain of guitars on the thunderous highlight “The Tortoise and the Tourist.”
