I listened to the first track, "Southwestern Territory," which coincidentally was the first ever Mountain Goats song I ever heard. I didn't "get" it right away, but then again, I'm probably not the guy to ask about the Mountain Goats (that would be Amazin' Avenue podcast wiz Jeff Paternostro). So why would I highlight a band I don't listen to? Well, it's not every day someone makes a wrestling album. Kid Rock never made a wrestling album. Neither did Metallica or Lynyrd Skynyrd. But the Mountain Goats? Yeah, they made a wrestling album. So you should at least give it a spin.
In other Mountain Goats news, Tom Breihan wrote a feature about the lead singer John Darnielle going to his first wrestling show in 35 years, and surprise, surprise, it was a Chikara show. It's amazing how professional wrestling fandom finds you even after you've left it behind.
