Overview

Good News for People Who Love Bad News [DualDisc]

Nearly four years have elapsed since Isaac Brock last treated Mouseketeers to a full-blown collection of mercurial musings on everything, including the kitchen sink. Plenty of things have changed in that period -- chief among them, Brock exorcising some of his more personal visions via the one-man-band Ugly Casanova and founding drummer Jeremiah Green flying the coop -- and Good News reflects that. Earthier than any previous Modest Mouse disc, it boasts a plethora of agreeably jaunty additions, notably the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, which buoys the impeccably catchy "Float On" and the jagged, Tom Waits–esque "The Devil's Workday." Brock also indulges his fondness for the rustic a bit more than usual, most effectively on "Satin in a Coffin," which has enough plucked acoustic instruments to pass muster in O Brother, Where Art Thou? territory. There are holdovers from days of yore: Brock's fascination for the spiritual bobs to the surface on the fascinating "Bukowski," while "Bury Me with It" slips gently into the sepia-toned mist of The Lonesome Crowded West. There's nothing but Good News here.
