EDITORS’ NOTES

Four years before “Float On” turned Isaac Brock into an unlikely pop star, his band’s major-label debut was a jittery opus about apocalypses big and small—one that took his Pacific Northwest ne’er-do-well persona global without sacrificing the idiosyncrasies that made Modest Mouse indie stalwarts. The music was as expansive and ethereal as the lyrics were claustrophobic and manic, pairing chiming guitars with cursed images of wild dogs, decimated cities, and infants turned angels. The album title is a Blade Runner reference, a fair hint at the fear and identity confusion within.
