In the Northern Hemisphere we're drawing awfully close to the end of summer. But, the weather is friggin' amazing, and this song is getting me totally amped for a 3-day weekend.
Modest Mouse's "Float On" could possibly be considered a "classic" at this point, released almost a decade ago on Good News For People Who Love Bad News. Yeah, it's hard to believe that it was so long again.
The feel-good summer vibe wasn't an accident. According to Isaac Brock:
It was a completely conscious thing. I was just kind of fed up with how bad shit had been going, and how dark everything was, with bad news coming from everywhere. Our president [George W. Bush] is just a fucking daily dose of bad news! Then you've got the well-intentioned scientists telling us that everything is fucked. I just want to feel good for a day.
So on that note, I hope you're enjoying your day!
