Sounds: The Mountain Goats at Antone’s

31 10 2008

The Mountain Goats will be making a stop this Saturday at Antone’s to promote their latest album Heretic Pride. The album was actually released this last February and received an 8.0 on the I’m too cool for school and you will listen to whatever the hell I tell you to listen too coolness meter on Pitchfork Media. I must be honest, I am a luke warm fan, well at least I was until I took a listen to Heretic Pride. You see, other than a few stand out tracks like No Children, some of their songs seem to blend into one long song, they all sounded the same to me. I know, I know… give it a chance right? Well I didn’t but the lovely significant other was a fan and so I downloaded the new album and loved it. It seems like they decided to speed things up a bit. At least that’s how I felt. But never mind that. Take a listen and tell us what you think. If you are so inclined to this Saturday, you can catch them at with Kaki King at Antone’s. For your viewing pleasure, I will submit to you, No Children from the Tallahassee album thanks to Youtube.
