aliss_blackout_hrt_bandits The Mountain goats are (an) artist(s) that makes music that is there not only to get depressed to, but also music that is there to get better (cured?) to. Favorite track: Bridge of Sighs.

Coraline Seksinsky this cover of blood bank is breath taking. goodness a great sounding release.
Ariamaki thumbnail
Ariamaki Save the People has always been one of the best tracks off of Godspell and John Darnielle has always been one of the best musicians alive. The combination is natural and rad. Favorite track: Save the People.

Mookitten Amazing covers. "Blood Bank" is just incredible. John's voice/interpretation is just absolutely wonderful, and the woodwinds are just phenomenal and make me feel things deep in my core. Favorite track: Blood Bank.

Blood Bank 04:11

the Mountain Goats Durham, North Carolina

John Darnielle has written almost 600 songs now, and some of them are very sad, dealing with hard drugs and tragic ends, hurting yourself and others, sicknesses of both body and brain, off-brand alcohols. They are told in beautiful, unnerving, specific detail because he is a very good writer, and also some of them are just true stories about his own life.
—John Hodgman, 2012
