So this is what the volume knob's for!

The Mountain Goats - Dance Music (Peel Session, 4/28/04) This is a song that John Darnielle, better known as the Mountain Goats has been touring quite a bit lately, and is from an upcoming album. Easily the best Mountain Goats song I've heard since "Oceanographers Choice" off of Tallahassee. This is a Peel session, which means that it sounds more stripped down than the inevitable studio vision - the presence of piano, (and I THINK a bit of bass) indicates this song will have a more fleshed out album edition, and will in fact be downright dancable. As it is, the song is classic Darnielle heartbreak, the story of a young kid escaping his squabbling parents with retreat into a world of loud dance music. Great stuff.

[Buy Mountain Goats albums from Amazon.com!]

Only one song today, because the evening has become unexpectedly caught up by the rush of brainstorm and arrangement in the setting up of a new idea. Everyone, I invite you to go check out Memos to Ourselves, a new AudioBlog for the world to post to. For more of an explanation, check out the initial post, by myself. So, Please, hop on over there, make a phone call and say something. I don't know if this will turn out the way I imagine it being able to turn out, but the only way to know is to try it, right? So hop on over, and help get things rolling, and tell all your friends too.

I love this song. Seriously my second favourite Mountain Goats song this side of "Best Ever Death Metal Band Out of Denton".

I keep expecting John D to bust out the chorus of the Counting Crows' "Mr. Jones" when I hear "Dance Music."
