Featured Release This Week From The Mountain Goats + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

May 30, 2017

The new album from The Mountain Goats is titled Goths, inspired to a large extent by the band's love for bands of the post-punk era.  Bands like Siouxsie and The Banshees, The Cure, Bauhaus and Gene Loves Jezebel.  The previous Mountain Goats studio album Beat The Champ had songs that dealt with the professional wrestling circuit.  Just like the songs on that album, John Darnielle's lyrics on Goths go deeper than the ostensible subject matter.  Darnielle's words are smart and funny as usual, and definitely dominate the proceedings.   Here's an interesting fact- for the first time on a Mountain Goats album, no guitars (other than bass) are played!
