Performance of an American indie-rock band, which was created in California in 1991 by a songwriter John Darnielle, will take place on 15 November. The name of the band refers to a song Yellow Coat by famous Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.
At the begining of their music career The Montain Goats became famous for their anti-commercial and extremely intimate approach to recording — with a small instrumentarium and a lo-fi garage aesthetics. Later, they’ve started recording in a studio and refined their sound, but one thing stayed the same — Darnielle’s characteristic, emotional voice and his oneiric lyrics with biblical and mythoogical referrences.
Album Goths, which was released last year, stunned and surprised all the critics, its probably the first indie-rock album recorded without guitar, but with piano instead. Members of the band, beside Darnielle, include Peter Hughes (bass), Jon Wurster (drums) and Matt Douglas (wind instruments and keyboard).
