MOUNTAIN GOATS, THE: All Eternals Deck: LP

May 03, 2011

I’ve decided The Mountain Goats are a great band to listen to when you’re struggling between getting older but still feeling like a kid. Musically, they (or, just John Darnielle) are fairly mature, yet they often reflect the problems of young dudes plagued with problems. While I want to call it folk rock, that does it a disservice. This one is a bit more dynamic and nuanced than some of their (again, or John’s) older material, which helps keep it feeling really fresh. People like stuff like Defiance: Ohio, and that Plan-It-X stuff, right? Then you’ll like this.
