Here is a 2LP cover album & companion piece to the podcast
debut of I Only Listen to the Mountain Goats, from Night Vale
Presents in collaboration with Merge Records and the Mountain
Premiering September 2017 and running through early April
2018, this unique bi-weekly podcast is a conversation music
series focusing on the seminal Mountain Goats album All
Hail West Texas, between Welcome to Night Vale and Alice Isn't
Dead creator Joseph Fink with New York Times best-selling
author John Darnielle, who is also the founder, lead singer, and
songwriter for the Mountain Goats-and Fink's own personal
artistic hero.
Together, Fink and Darnielle take the listener on a deep dive
into the world of creativity and the duality of being an artist
and a fan, both by sharing their own creative processes and
music-geek obsessions and through immersive chats with other
notable musicians and writers including best-selling YA author
and music nerd John Green (The Fault in Our Stars) and Merge
Records co-founder Mac McCaughan (Superchunk), as well as
many special music guests such as Andrew Bird, Craig Finn,
Laura Jane Grace, and Amanda Palmer, who offer up their own
opinions as well as new renditions of songs from All Hail West
This limited edition 2LP contains the full All Hail West Texas
covers collection, introduced over the course of podcast season
one, pressed to opaque pink & opaque blue vinyl.
