Kamani Goths is an excellent album introduced to me by a friend. All of the songs are great, although my favorites would be the first two, especially Andrew Eldritch Is Moving Back to Leeds (which sort of reminds me of my hometown).
Thank you for this excellent album. Favorite track: Andrew Eldritch Is Moving Back to Leeds.

Steve Lawson Easily my album of the year for 2017. Musically, lyrically and conceptually, this is properly magical - the musical nods to the world of Goths are exquisitely done, and it all feels like such a heartfelt tribute to the delights of musical subcultures. Love everything about this. Favorite track: Paid in Cocaine.

Stocklone I consider this album the indie Aja. I think it has the same level of calculated perfection. One of my favorite albums of 2017. Favorite track: The Grey King and the Silver Flame Attunement.

about

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
