Mountain Goats

Indie rockers The Mountain Goats are a band from Claremont, California. The band often fuses nerd rock with folk to create a unique storytelling style to their music with a fair amount of snark. The Mountain Goats formed in 1991 and was a one-man-band for a long time under the helm of John Darnielle.

The band has had a revolving door of members and collaborators over the years, much like the often-compared band The Decemberists. It now has three official members, John Darnielle on vocals, guitar and keyboard, Peter Hughes on bass, and Jon Worster on drums.
