I rarely promote anything on this space, but this is something I’ve very proud to have been a part of.  The Mountain Goats, a band I am hugely fond of, are about to release a new album called “The Life Of The World To Come.” It’s a beautiful album.  Awhile back, they (and by ‘they’ I mean John Darnielle) got in touch with me about filming a few songs being performed live.  This is what we ended up doing:  we rented a hall in Pomona College, the very first space John ever performed in (as a child doing a piano recital) and I shot him performing the entire album straight through, in one continuous shot.  It captures in some way (I hope) what’s so special about seeing John perform live.
A full length version of the video will be made available very soon online (the label is working out the hows of it now) but in the meanwhile if you’re in NYC, come on down to a screening we’re doing on the 4th.  John and I will be there for a q&a.
