Hear The Mountain Goats Debut New Music With Owen Pallett

By Tom Breihan / March 29, 2012

Last week, the Mountain Goats took part in the Ecstatic Music Festival, a New York event that exists somewhere on the border between indie rock and classical music. Mountain Goats frontman John Darnielle was there to debut music from a new project called Transcendental Youth, and he had some help: The classical music vocal quartet Anonymous 4 and violin-shredder Owen Pallett, who toured with the Mountain Goats a couple of years ago. Right now, you can stream an exceptionally clear 90-minute recording of the entire concert, which starts out with Anonymous 4 performing sans Darnielle, at NPR (via Pitchfork).
