Well, here it is, the first single from the upcoming Modest Mouse album We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank. The album was originally slated for a December release but now appears to have been pushed back to March. "Dashboard" debuted on Seattle radio station 107.7 The End on New Year's Eve, and this is a recording of that premiere. The quality leaves something to be desired, but hey... it's new Modest Mouse! (It definitely beats live recordings if you ask me.) This album will, of course, be the band's first release with former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr contributing in the songwriting department. It does seem like a bit of a new direction for them... what do you think, can you hear the Marr influence?
