New Mountain Goats Album

Mountain Goats

 

The ever-wonderful Mountain Goats return with a new album Goths, due on 19th May (order here).

It is a particularly appropriate/nostalgic title for those of us (Mrs M & I) of a certain age who were in the thick of the original Goth movement, all black with purple hints, eyeliner and gloom all pervading and its capital in the heart of the north of England.

It is summed up perfectly by the first single Andrew Eldritch Is Moving Back To Leeds, of which John Darnielle has to say of the undisputed godfather of Goth, “In the lyric, I imagine one of my teenage heroes, Andrew Eldritch, returning to the town where the band worked and played when they were young. His friends give him a hard time about ending up back where he started, but not because they’re mad: it’s good to see an old friend wearing the marks of time on his hands and face like well-loved tattoos. So shall it be in these times: your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions, and Andrew Eldritch, whose music has reached spirits in every corner of the globe, will move back to Leeds.”

And from bassist Peter Hughes:

Anyone old enough to have had the experience of finding oneself at sea in a cultural landscape that’s suddenly indecipherable will empathize with Pat Travers showing up to a Bauhaus show looking to jam, for example. But underneath the outward humor, there is evident throughout a real tenderness toward, and solidarity with, our former fellow travelers—the friends whose bands never made it out of Fender’s Ballroom, the Gene Loves Jezebels of the world—the ones whose gothic paths were overtaken by the realities of life, or of its opposite. It’s something we talk about a lot, how fortunate and grateful we are to share this work, a career that’s become something more rewarding and fulfilling than I think any of us could have imagined. We all know how easily it could’ve gone the other way, and indeed for a long time did.

Hear hear.

best of the weekNine songs for your listening pleasure gathered from the week’s new releases.

We have Mountain Goats showing that even with a throwaway song, composed off the back of a jokey Twitter conversation, John Darnielle can better 95% of what is out there, whilst Molly Burch and Tara Jane O’Neil’s beautifully composed songs are at the other end of the pendulum’s swing.

We also have some brilliant fuzzy, indie rock from Snail Mail, Okkervil River’s cover of a Roky Erikson gem especially for Amazon’s Valentines playlist, and another cover (this time it is the Jesus & Mary Chain) from Beach Slang. Some catchy, but caustic punk from Bleached, and some equally catchy garage-punk from The Courtneys. We finish off with a wonderful 60s psych-freak-folk inspired track from Shadow Band.

Enjoy.

  1. Snail Mail – Thinning
  2. Okkervil River – You Don’t Love Me Yet  (Roky Erikson cover)
  3. Mountain Goats – The Ultimate Jedi Who Wastes All The Other Jedi And Eats Their Bones
  4. Molly Burch – Wrong For You
  5. Bleached – Can You Deal?
  6. Tara Jane O’Neil – Sand
  7. The Courtneys – Minnesota
  8. Beach Slang – Sometimes Always  (Jesus & Mary Chain cover)
  9. Shadow Band – Daylight
