The best ever vinyl reisssue in Denver.
The Mountain Goats have shared a vinyl reissue of their 2002 album All Hail West Texas via Merge.
All Hail West Texas is the sixth album by the North Carolina-based band and was their last album, until 2020, to feature just frontman John Darnielle. It features cult favourite songs like “The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton” and is distinct for its DIY, home recording style.
This reissue, the album’s first on coloured vinyl, was remastered from the original tapes and includes extensive liner notes from Darnielle.
You can order All Hail West Texas on yellow vinyl now.
