The Mountain Goats and guitarist-singer-songwriter Kaki King recorded a six-song EP, Black Pear Tree, and they just released the first single from it. Titled “Thank You Mario But Our Princess is in Another Castle,” John Darnielle describes it as being from the point of view of Toad (shown above being used as a human – er. Toad – shield by the Peach Princess). King and Darnielle are planning on having the EP available as a download and as vinyl in time for their joint tour, which kicks off on October 13 in Chicago.
