All Eternals Deckthe new album from John Darnielles long-running lit-folk outfit, the Mountain Goatsis every bit as excellent as dudes given us reason to expect it to be. That said, Age of Kings is still shockingly pretty, probably the handsomest thing Darnielles issued to dateif only it were one of the tunes the Goats recorded with death-metal honcho Erik Rutan. (Among the Rutan-helmed cuts? The Autopsy Garland.) Anyway, you can expect Darnielle and his mates (including Superchunk drummer Jon Wurster) to play Age of Kings during this weeks sold-out three-night stand at the Bowery Ballroom. Prepare to swoon. With Megafaun.
