Free Download: Mountain Goats ‘Tyler Lambert’s Grave’
There are three camps when it comes to the Mountain Goats. The first camp is comprised of everyone who has never heard of the Mountain Goats, which is most people. The second is those who find singer John Darnielle’s nasal talk-croon annoying. I fall into the third camp – those that bow down with gratitude every time a new Darnielle song hits the
airwaves Internet. If you’re in my camp (we play acoustic guitar every night), then you’ll be thrilled to know that Darnielle has just made a new and exclusive Mountain Goats track available for free download.
The reason for this sweet gift: @mountain_goats passed the 5000-follower mark on Twitter. I always knew Twitter would be good for something! The song, “Tyler Lambert’s Grave,” was recorded during sessions for the forthcoming MG album All Eternals Deck, but didn’t make the final cut because it didn’t fit the overall mood of the record.
