Ugly Casanova – “Smoke Like Ribbons” from Sharpen Your Teeth (2002)
I prefer this album to Modest Mouse these days because it exhibits Isaac Brock’s songwriting talent without all the “Float On” baggage. But mostly, I like the tones added by Brian Deck (drummer/producer extraordinaire) and Tim Rutili (of Califone) whose work Glenn and I deeply respect.
This song’s hickish laxity is a balm to any abrasions you may have suffered from Modest Mouse as of late.
Also excellent is “Hotcha Girls” on the same record.
