Modest Mouse! Strangers to Ourselves: it's their first album in eight years, so it seems as though the band is making an extra special effort to let it be known that they are back in the world of music. After a carefully staggered announcement of songs from the album, they're now giving everybody something fun to play with.

What is it? It's a "linguistic remix generator". How does it work? You input any words (within 96 characters), which then become a loop alongside instrumental accompaniments lifted from album tracks, all set to customisable visuals. Fun! Check it out here.

And secondly, Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock has recorded a track-by-track commentary for the album. You can go listen to this on Spotify.

If all this ain't added value, we don't know what is.
