8 Best New Rock Songs We Heard in January

#1Modest Mouse, "Coyotes

Sometimes a song and a video go hand-in-hand forever. "Thriller." "Freak on a Leash." And now "Coyotes," from the forthcoming Strangers to OurselvesModest Mouse's first album in eight years. The song's a gentle thing squarely in the indie act's wheelhouse, but the video—an adorable coyote takes a long voyage on a commuter train—makes it one of the month's standout pieces of music. -Zach Dionne
