The Mountain Goats at Lincoln Hall, 6/17

April 15th, 2013

john-darnielle-2012

The Mountain Goats will be hitting the road once again this summer, performing as a duo for the first time in several years. Frontman John Darnielle was inspired to take his folk-rock outfit back to its two-man roots after scheduling conflicts prevented Superchunk’s Jon Wurster from joining the group at a gig in Poland. Darnielle and longtime collaborator Peter Hughes will be joined by the Baptist Generals, whose long-awaited sophomore LP will debut on May 21 via Sub Pop.

Last-minute notice: not doing anything tonight at 6?

Head down to Origami Vinyl for a special in-store performance from John Darnielle, vocalist/guitarist of the Moutain Goats.

It’s free, and Darnielle’s set will last for 30 minutes. Space is limited, though, so don’t wait around to show up. Origami Vinyl’s blog says that only 50 people will be let into the gig.

Again, it kicks off in a little over an hour and a half – so if you’re going to go, go!

The Mountain Goats- Transcendental Youth

October 2nd, 2012

A Mountain Goats Masterpiece

Throughout its lifetime, The Mountain Goats (which primarily consists of songwriter/vocalist/guitarist John Darnielle) has cranked out songs with themes varying from sci-fi and mythological adventures to inescapable depression and self-loathing. Darnielle’s fourteenth studio album Transcendental Youth proudly floats between the two extremes, blending prose-like imagery and characterization with poignant, emotional themes—and it just might be his greatest triumph yet.

Apocalyspe Now

The trio of indie rockers from Claremont, California formed by singer-songwriter John Darnielle have returned with their 17th release, All Eternals Deck, bringing in a eclectic ensamble with barbershop style harmonies and an unlikely collaboration with death metal authority Erik Rutan producing a few songs on the album. A stark juxtaposition from 2009’s caliginous The Life of the World to Come, All Eternals Deck is an energetic album overflowing with inflated strings, compelling piano, and musical surprises when you least expect it.
