In collaboration with Night Vale Presents, the first episode of a new podcast titled I Only Listen To The Mountain Goats dropped today. The show sees frontman John Darnielle sitting down with Joseph Fink (Welcome To Night Vale creator) tackling the stories behind the Mountain Goats album All Hail West Texas one song at a time. The podcast will also feature discussions based around songwriting craft, inspiring artists, and current events, as well as premiering a new cover version of each album track by a different artist.
This week, the first cover comes from Against Me! singer/songwriter, guitarist Laura Jane Grace. She’s covering the opening track from All Hail West Texas, “The Best Ever Death Metal Band In Denton.”
All of the covers from season one of the podcast will be collected and released as a full compilation album from Merge Records, which can be pre-ordered now.
