The Mountain Goats - Heretic Pride (4ad) Those Mountain Goats - they keep on coming. This is album number 15 from John Darnielle, a former psychiatric nurse and writer. Big on autobiographical songs and lo-fi production, there's never going to be a mass market for this sort of stuff, but there's a nagging feeling that it should be more popular than it is. It's intelligent, literate and positively elegant in places, and what with Darnielle's unnatural attention to detail, we're all for it. Now, if we can just convince another hundred thousand or so folks... 8/10.
