LISTEN — The Mountain Goats, ‘Goths’ + Tour Dates

June 2nd, 2017

“For the Mountain Goats‘ 16th full-length album, Goths, Darnielle once again takes a conceptual detour. As its title suggests, it’s about growing up goth — about establishing a place for yourself among other outcasts — but it also finds the band shedding guitars and adding a fourth permanent member in multi-instrumentalist Matt Douglas. Each of those changes proves important: Thematically rich enough to encompass everything from radio-soundtracked summer road trips to memories of drugs and debauchery to the lessons learned from the splintering of the band Gene Loves Jezebel, Goths makes bold moves in its subtly vibrant sound, which here revolves largely around piano and Douglas’ woodwind arrangements.”
