Against my better judgment, I recorded a covers EP of some of my favorite Townes Van Zandt songs, recasting them as woozy, synth-heavy ballads & dirges. Releasing a song a week until it's out. Only 20 albums made, hand-cut in real-time on a high-quality stereo record lathe. Hand-numbered with imperfectly painted highways — the road being one of Van Zandt's favorite and most reliable metaphors — by yours truly. Recorded at home in February 2020. Lushly mastered for vinyl by Ondřej Ježek at Jamor studio in Prague.
***note: so sorry to those in Europe & Canada for the exorbitant shipping cost. the cheapest option still ends up being around $20.

Bought my 1st Mt Goats cassette in 1993?94? from Shrimper -- direct. Best song? "Going To Chino." Been deeply in love w/ Mr. Darnielle since. And this new one's going on my Best of 2020 List. You done the pagans proud, kind sir. Otis Nugatory
