Amoeba Review

The Mountain Goats mastermind John Darnielle’s latest, Goths, is a surprising, delightful look at growing up a weird kid, then just growing…older. The album begins with the excellent, majestic “Rain in Soho,” an intense, dark opener featuring a haunting backing choir. From here on, Darnielle explores lyrical themes of searching for belonging, lost youth, and a lifelong dedication to the underground. (He also runs down a list of influential goth bands, what they’re probably doing now, and interesting facts about them he gleaned from Wikipedia on the closing track, “Abandoned Flesh.”) The album, in spite of its influences, however, doesn’t sound anything like a goth record: instead Darnielle stays away from guitars, relying instead on an electric piano to create a jazzy lounge lizard vibe. Weird, wonderful, and worth repeated listens.
