A surprise cassette released in April 2020, Songs for Pierre Chuvin is the Mountain Goats’ first all-boombox album since 2002’s All Hail West Texas. After selling over 4000 cassettes online in a matter of minutes, the avid Mountain Goats fanbase has demanded more and they are happy to acquiesce, giving Songs for Pierre Chuvin a full release on CD and LP in March 2021. 

“Recording on the same boombox that launched his career, John Darnielle returns to his lo-fi roots for an album of alienation, ancient pagans, and making it through the year together” - Pitchfork 

“Full of images fit for these dismal times and slogans suited to surviving them, Pierre Chuvin is an inspiring reminder of how much each of us has left to learn” - NPR 

“[Songs for Pierre Chuvin] can be used to escape the present emergency - or, if the listener so chooses, to better understand it” - The Atlantic 

Songs for Pierre Chuvin is exactly what we’ve come to expect: big-hearted songs full of warmth and smarts, custom-built to comfort and to inspire” - Bandcamp
