A Mountain Goats sampler

April 13, 2008

[embedded YouTube video; if you can’t see it, click here]

I’ve been on something of a Mountain Goats kick recently, partly because of the recent concerts and partly because listening to John Darnielle’s songs can make anyone feel better about their personal life. I ended up putting together a ‘best of’ CD for myself, and then proffering it to assorted friends. In lieu of accosting you personally, grabbing your lapels, and shouting, ‘John Darnielle is a brilliant songwriter and lyricist!’, I instead humbly offer this small sampling of his work. All links are to YouTube.

Going to Georgia (live); from Zopilote Machine, 1994

See America Right (live), from Tallahassee, 2002

This Year (video), from The Sunset Tree, 2005

Woke Up New (video), from Get Lonely, 2006

Sax Rohmer #1 (video), from Heretic Pride, 2008

Intrigued? For more info, check out this recent interview and session on NPR.
