Modest Mouse — Dramamine

For some reason, Modest Mouse is one of my favorite bands that I never consider one of my favorite bands. When asked to list my favorite bands I never think of them but after I hear a song or listen through an album I’m happy because they put out a really good product.

I think that part of this is that once Johnny Marr joined, I started to enjoy them on another level because I really dig his signature jangly guitar sound. But, I’ve always thought that Isaac Brock is a pretty amazing lyricist. He’s unconventional as a front-man and his voice can be offputting. But the lyrics are gold.

Lyrics I enjoy in this song:

Traveling swallowing Dramamine
Look at your face like you’re killed in a dream
And you think you’ve figured out everything
I think I know my geography pretty damn well
