The Mountain Goats - "Get Lonely"

Josh Darnielle's memoir The Sunset Tree wows me every time I listen to it. Actually, I think anyone who has given the album a few listens, is probably sucked in like me. It's ability to make you dance, cry, and sympathize with Darnielle's troubling relationship with his stepfather was something only accomplished through honest and emotional lyrics that Darnielle delivers with the utmost sincerity.

The Mountain Goats newest endeavor, Get Lonely, is released today on 4AD records. Throughout the album Darnielle fights to forget about the aeformentioned troubling relationship and move on. The scars are still there, but songs such as "Woke up New" resonate with new hope. "Get Lonely" finds Darnielle taking trips downtown and painting pictures by himself. Where does he go from here? And "In the Hidden Places" zips around Darnielle's mind, seeking out solitude from his haunting past. The Mountain Goats' Get Lonely is another lyrical masterpiece by Darnielle and a wonderful follow up to The Sunset Tree.
