Trending Now

John Darnielle (aka The Mountain Goats) has been serenading us with the fortunes of his fictitious, doomed ‘Alpha couple’ for nigh on a decade. Produced by Tony Doogan (Delgados, Belle & Sebastian), Tallahassee is the sound of their relationship hitting the rocks in 14 spirited, acoustic movements; where love is “like the border between Greece and Albania” (“International Small Arms Traffic Blues”) and the only pillow-talk is “I hope we both die”. Bitterness never sounded so sweet.
