Allow us now to recount this tidbit of our adorable interview with the Mountain Goat John Darnielle: the folkie, who put together most of his early recordings on a beloved boombox, now has a new engineer: his four-or-so-year-old son Roman. Darnielle says that most of his new demos start out with him asking, “Roman, you ready to demo this jam?” If Roman answers in the affirmative, Darnielle instructs him to jam the big button that starts his metronome and they get recordin’. Darnielle ain’t lo-fi anymore, though: his latest Beat The Champ (out last year on Merge) is an exploration of his love of professional wrestling, especially as a balm during his difficult childhood.
