i went to see the mountain goats (aka john darnielle) play last night and was reminded of how much i love them.

john darnielle is one of my indie artist heroes. solo artistic expression is kind of terrifying, really, (for me anyway)—you're putting your stuff out there to be judged and possibly rejected. and it's all yours, no company or partners to blame or hide behind. so when i love another artist's things, like i love john's music, it makes me believe more that other people will love what i do.

his music is sublime and just about perfect, and you should love it too:
