Song of the Day - August 4, 2006

I wasn't that familiar with The Mountain Goats until last week's Pitchfork Festival. John Darnielle put on an excellent show and converted me into a life long fan. I was fortunate enough to be very near the stage (about 10 feet) and enjoyed his brand of indie-folk immensely. Last year The Mountain Goats released The Sunset Tree, which was loved by many and now by me. John Danielle is a master of the lyric combining erudite references, disturbing subjects, and sometimes nebulous words that I find very intriguing. Great songs abound on The Sunset Tree. Favorites include: "Dilaudid," "Lion's Teeth," and "Hast Thou Considered The Tetrapod." Song of the day honors go to "This Year," an emotional song dealing with Danielle's troubled youth.
