the nanny has a band?

OK, who tricked me into thinking a John Darnielle album would be good? The lead singer of The Mountain Goats has a voice like an actual mountain goat. I wouldn't be surprised to meet him and realize he has the legs of a satyr, including the backwards-bent knees and cloven shoes to contain his cloven hooves.

He sounds like Eminem taught him to sing. He could be Billy Corgan's brutha-from-anotha-mutha. If I ever met him, I'd expect him to hike his pants to chest and say "Hey big guy! Got any cheese?" There are some unconventional rock voices out there for sure, but JD's voice is cheddar-cheese, wrought-iron, flash-flood storm grating.
