The Mountain Goats Drop Upbeat New Single


Bands like the Mountain Goats release music whenever they see fit. Releasing new music inside of new albums isn’t new but for these guys their sound evolves with each release. For their new album Jenny From Thebes they’ve amped things up a bit and are giving us more uumph. Their latest single “Murder at the 18th Street Garage” displays that sound. Stream it below.

The upbeat nature of the song gives you the lyrics immediately. The way the band hits the skins and offers themselves up with a quickened touch is masterful.The video for the song has a darkness to it that matches the song. The vocals link up with the fast paced tone and give you an energy you can’t really match with other bands.

The song can be heard above or wherever you stream music. Jenny From Thebes is available for preorder from Merge Records before it drops on October 27. the Mountain Goats are on tour starting October 02 at Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, CA until December 15 in Jacksonville, FL at The Bier Hall at Intuition Ale Works. Their dates can be found here.
