You can listen to the new song “A Lifeless Ordinary (Need a Little Help)” by Motion City Soundtrack off their upcoming My Dinosaur Life here. This is the third song they’ve released off the new album so far, and it is far and away the most enticing. “Disappear” was a grower, certainly, but it lacked some of Justin Pierre’s characteristic lyrical and vocal charm, instead opting for a rougher, more edgy sound. The next track, which also premiered at Spin.com (and can be heard here), was entitled “Her Words Destroyed My Planet.” It was…bad, to say the least. Thankfully, this new track finds MCS doing what they do best instead of trying to be edgy and cursing a lot, and though it doesn’t blow my mind, it at least means the new album will be worth a listen. My Dinosaur Life hits stores January 19th.
