Das Ausbluten am Ende eines kurzen Tages

von: Michael Engelbrecht Filed under: Blog | TB | 1 Comment


One of my favourite bands, The Mountain Goats, have announced their next album. Remember, the last one, „Dark In Here“, was an absolute gem, a highlight in lyrical and musical terms, even for the band‘s high standards. 
Bleed Out is inspired by action movies from the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s, in which Mountain Goats frontman John Darnielle found comfort toward the end of 2020. Cozied up in his North Carolina home, Darnielle watched French thrillers like 2008’s Mesrine, vintage Italian Poliziotteschi, and 1974’s The Freakmaker starring Donald Pleasence.

 

 

 


“So, heads up. I got this idea to write a bunch of songs where they were all uptempo mini-action movies. Plots, characters, heists, hostages, questionable capers, getaway cars, all that stuff. Gas pedal glued to the floor. Eventually as you might guess I wanted at least one song where the tempo relaxed a little and that’s the title track but otherwise buckle up. We hid out in the woods in Chapel Hill and made this album with nobody knowing about it. Proper secret-soldier style. It has been pretty hard keeping this under our hats, we are really proud of what we got here.”
