Song of the Day - September 5, 2006

The Mountain Goats' latest release Get Lonely is a great record, however, it is a subtle album, a quiet album, a contemplative album that may require a few listens before the greatness is apparent. This is an album to listen to late at night; a bittersweet, often sad album that is best accompanied by your favorite alcohol beverage. Lately, I prefer a single malt scotch, preferably from Islay. John Darnielle is a master storyteller and lyricist. This album requires concentration, one must listen to the lyrics, let them be absorbed into your brain. It is not unlike great literature. If you let yourself get lost in the world of a good book or great song, you will be richly rewarded. "Maybe Sprout Wings" is my favorite track; it goes wonderfully with my Laphroaig and I love the cello accompaniment. Click here to listen.
