This song is a beautiful bluegrass interpretation of an already awesome song, Modest Mouse’s “Float On”. Played so well you’d think it were the original, this jam will have your foot stompin’ and your head bobbing in a way Modest Mouse doesn’t normally lend you to do.
If you aren’t familiar with Pickin On’ (or bluegrass) this is a great introduction. Pickin’ On has covered everything from Radiohead to Led Zeppelin to Beck, The Beatles, and Coldplay. The Modest Mouse album is particularly catchy as its one of the only ones with vocals, but the way they tear up a bango, they hardly need a singer.
