The Mountain Goats – “Cry For Judas”

The Mountain Goats - Transcendental Youth

Earlier this month, we learned that the Mountain Goats have a new album called Transcendental Youth coming out in the fall. And today, the first track from the LP hits the internet. It’s called “Cry For Judas,” and it’s an expansively bouncy tune that, as promised, makes prominent use of a horn section, which is a little disorienting coming from this band. But good lord does it ever feel good to hear John Darnielle belting out shards of deeply-felt imagery and religious iconography again. Download it below.
