The Mountain Goats appear on this week's broadcast of Mountain Stage.

Indie-rock band The Mountain Goats visited us after their sixteenth studio album, Goths was released.

On this week's encore broadcast of Mountain Stage, we go back to when The Mountain Goats helped us celebrate our 34th anniversary in 2017. Our Song of the Week, "The Grey King and The Silver Flame Attunement," from Goths, contains the unforgettable refrain of “I’m hardcore, but I’m not that hardcore.”

The Mountain Goats released album 19, Getting Into Knives, in October of 2020 on Merge Records.

This week's encore episode also features performances by Joe Henry, Nellie McKay and John K. Samson. Tune in this weekend via 270 NPR stations and be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for more announcements.
