The Mountain Goats

  • Details

    The Mountain Goats are, for all practical purposes, the endlessly clever and prolific John Darnielle and whomever he chooses to work with at the moment, which means the sound may change from project to project, but the overall tone and feel of his work remains remarkably consistent. Darnielle writes finely observed, impressionistic vignettes that blend a clear, realistic sense of detail with mildly surreal imaginings, giving his work a literary flavor that suits his status as a songwriter who is also a successful novelist.

    In January 2022, Darnielle published his third novel, Devil House, a thriller about a true crime writer who gets more than he bargained for when he's invited to spend time at a house where a infamous murder took place. It wasn't long after the book came out that started work on the next Mountain Goats album. A collection of songs about getting even and the consequences of bad behavior informed by crime films of the 1970s and '80s, Bleed Out was produced by Alicia Bognanno of the band Bully, who also played guitar and keyboards on the sessions. The album was released on in August 2022.
