On November 5th, 2002 The Mountain Goats released Tallahassee. Artists and fans across genres love John Darnielle's wordy, probing songs; and for many, Tallahassee was the album that made us fall in love. To celebrate its tenth birthday, Crooked Neighbor has commissioned fifteen bands to cover the album's fourteen songs (and one b-side), creating Tallahassee Turns Ten: A Mountain Goats Cover Album.
You can buy the record by clicking here. All profit from the album will be donated to:
We were blown away by this cover, which feels like hearing the other side of a story you thought you already knew. In fact, we kinda like to imagine the Alpha Couple leaving the two versions of this song as drunk answering machine messages for one another.
The record was produced by Crooked Neighbor LLC and Daniel Isaac Burrage. It was mastered by John McCaig at Panic Studios. All artwork for the album and website was designed and rendered by Sarah Graley. All songs written by John Darnielle.
