Patrick » Music » The Mountain Goats

You might not easily recognize it through the hiss of the home 4-track recorder, but John Darnielle actually likes well-produced music. A spiritual contemporary of Daniel Johnston, Darnielle has taken his bathroom recordings and stepped into the studio on his last album, "The Sunset Tree", one of the best of 2005. With the release of the new disc, "Get Lonely", rapidly approaching, here is a small sample of The Mountain Goats back catalog, a Dead-like compendium of 2.5 minute snippets of brilliance.
