Sax Rohmer #1
|As promised, the first sample of the new Mountain Goats record Heretic Pride, in stores February 19 though the first 100 pre-orders get a couple of bonus tracks as well. The quiet contemplation of Get Lonely is shelved for the fullest rock band arrangements that have ever graced a Goats record, including drums from Superchunk-er Jon Wurster. Also guesting on the record is Ms Annie Clark, aka St Vincent, on guitar and vocals, and frequent collaborators Franklin Bruno and Erik Friedlander. And that Les Paul photo I was teasing about a few days ago? Maybe not such a prop after all.
They’ve also added some east coast tour dates though nothing up this way yet.
