The Mountain Goats: Transcendental Youth
Buy! - (Merge)
The latest album from John Darnielle & co. is an emotionally powerful set of smartly crafted songs centering around social outcasts and recluses, with the setting for most of the songs being various places in Washington state. The acoustic-oriented sound is crisp and clear, with piano, a basic rhythm section and prominent horns fleshing out Darnielle’s tales of people struggling with mental illness, drug abuse and just trying to survive. 9/21/2012 - Don Yates
