The only reason I’ve ever listened to Manchester Orchestra is because I was at some party a couple of years ago and met some kid and found out he was into The Mountain Goats so we talked about music for like an hour. I don’t remember much from that conversation other than he liked The Mountain Goats and recommended Manchester Orchestra. Good recommendation. Here is a song from Manchester Orchestra’s Mean Everything To Nothing, coming out in April.

“We wanted our album to sound as emotionally dark as ‘Pinkerton’ as fuzzy as ‘In the Aeroplane Over the Sea,’ or any Jack White guitar tone, and as musically intense as ‘In Utero.'”
