{Mountain Goats & Kaki King}


According to the official Mountain Goats website, John Darnielle is going to be using Radiohead’s pay-what-you-want approach for his forthcoming EP with Kaki King titled Last Happy Night of Your Life.

From Darnielle:

"The downloads will be open to everybody, with no hoops to jump through, though there will also be several options available for those who want to pay me for my work, since part of the point of the exercise is to see whether that’s a viable route for smaller-potatoes-than-Radiohead dudes like me".

The EP will also be available physically as a double-7-inch limited to 666 lucky fans who catch him on tour.

For now I've had the video game-referencing tune "Thank You Mario But Our Princess Is in Another Castle" on constant rotation. Get the download (courtesy of Stereogum) Right Here
