Over the course of their last four albums (Tallahassee, We Shall All Be Healed, The Sunset Tree & Get Lonely) & three sell out tours in the last three years John Darnielle, aka The Mountain Goats, has well & truly established himself in Australia. And with good reason. Darnielle’s florid lyrical images & spellbinding turn of phrase, coupled with a knack for the good old fashioned pop hook, has resulted in a ton of airplay & a word of mouth phenomenon that money just can’t buy.
Also renowned for their rich & emotionally affecting live performances, The Mountain Goats have just released a new album, Heretic Pride, another collection loaded with oddball characters & intriguing stories wrapped up in perhaps The Mountain Goats most musically upbeat recording to date.
The Mountain Goats are returning to Australia this April for a heap of shows. Quite naturally bass player extraordinaire Peter Hughes will be in tow, but they will also be bringing their drummer to Australia for the first time, Mr Jon Wurster (who also plays in Superchunk!).
