Mountain Goats 1

Remember when The Mountain Goats began this return to goth roots? They shared “Andrew Eldritch is Moving Back to Leeds”, a characteristic track about the essential gothic Sisters of Mercy frontman, setting the tone for their forthcoming record Goths, out May 19th on Merge.

So here we have “Rain In Soho”, a torrent of dark waves that ripple the left side of the piano and and meet John Darnielle‘s subdued, but still powerful vocals somewhere in the middle as a show of force. This record is bound for greatness. Listen below.
