Representing different, but intertwining sections of my life/record collection, Mountain Goats and Jawbreaker cassettes got a lot of wear in my teenage boombox. They’ve come together magically via AV Club’s Undercover series. Makes perfect sense. Darnielle & Co. tackle “Boxcar” from 1994′s 24 Hour Revenge Therapy. “1-2-3-4: Who’s punk, what’s the score?,” etc.
Note telling insertion of Didion for Kerouac. (Now I want to hear Darnielle lose his glasses to “Chesterfield King.”)
