#254: The Mountain Goats, “Getting Into Knives”

Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist, updated every Wednesday.

John Darnielle is Getting Into Knives! And it’s probably his best album in almost a decade, when ‘All Eternals Deck’ brought us some of the most memorable the Mountain Goats songs. Closing the album, the title track is the standout here – a repeat affair right after the first listen.
