Mountain Goats Redux: Tour + Flashback


Hitting the road with
Kaki King.

By Fred Mills



Mountain Goats, apparently aiming to shoot for some kind of Dylan-like “Never-Ending
Tour” stats, hit the road yet again in October for a monthlong tour with Kaki
King. (These will be preceded by a couple of shows in England in September.)


The BLURT faves are still flying high on their Heretic Pride, released by 4AD back in
February, and naturally BLURT had a few things to say about it: “[Frontman John
Darnielle] channels his anger and romantic disappointment into grist for some
of his strongest songs in a while. Just be glad that he lives out in his
stunning noir fantasies in songs instead of going postal.” Read the full review



What the heck: why not also read what we had to say about
Darnielle & Co. back when we were just a little ol’ print mag named HARP.
