Vuelven The Mountain Goats: amarás a John Darnielle como a ti mismo

Desde Trascendental Youth, el disco más AOR de su carrera (deliciosamente AOR, diría yo, pero AOR al fin y al cabo; y ojo que aún podría meter un nuevo AOR para batir el récord de AORs en una frase desde que le propusimos a @poliptoton escribirse un repaso de la discografía de Bon Jovi), The Mountain Goats permanecían callados. A John Darnielle le había dado tiempo de otras cosas, sus labores: escribir, relatar, amar la vida.

Ahora ha anunciado que vuelve con su grupo en abril con nuevo disco, Beat The Champ, en un comunicado que os copio y pego del tirón porque:

a) es disfrutable cien por cien;
b) os viene bien si os tenéis que sacar el B1;
y c) tampoco me da la vida para mucho más.

Sólo recordad que ya tenemos dos discos de wrestling de gente a la que tenéis que amar, el de Luke Haines y el de Mountain Goats. Entra, John, cuéntales lo tuyo:

My name is John Darnielle. I was born under the sign of the Water Sorcerer but am licensed to practice in the houses of the Earth Wizard, Cyclone Snake, and Flame Devourer. My band is the Mountain Goats, I wrote this book, and my next one, Wolf in White Van, was published by Farrar, Struass & Giroux in September of 2014 and got itself nominated for the National Book Award. i prefer working to sleeping and can make several different kinds of biscuits.
SUBJECTS OF SONGS I HAVE WRITTEN SINCE TRANSCENDENTAL YOUTH:1) vultures, pigs, dinosaurs, necklaces, plates with pictures of cats on them, attachable dragon tails2) the career trajectory of Black Sabbath
3) professional wrestling
The songs about the animals and dinosaurs you can only wrangle out of me if 1) you’re one of my sons or 2) I’m feeling sentimental, and the Ozzy songs must ripen in the darkness until the fullness of the last days. But the wrestling songs, several of which, surprise surprise, are really more about death and difficult-to-navigate interior spaces than wrestling — those will all be let out of their cages on April 7th in North America.

(AOR)
