With 14 studio albums to his credit, the Mountain Goats' John Darnielle has long since established himself as one of indie rock's finest lyrical singer/songwriters, whether in his early lo-fi incarnation or in his latter full-band form. Across all of his albums, brutally insightful character studies give way to universal emotional truths, often transmitted in big, scream-along acoustic choruses. The Mountain Goats' latest album, Transcendental Youth, is no different in that respect. What's new are the contrastingly bright and brassy horn sections supplied by tonight's opener, Matthew E. White. Should be a hell of a show.
