My reason to get down to New York has finally come in the form of a Kaki King & Mountain Goats tour getting there around the 8th of November. Good god, anything anyone can say about Kaki King is just completely insufficient to how incredible she really is, and I have to say that The Mountain Goats are also pretty far up there as well. This collaboration is extraordinary, really. It took me a few listens of the six song Black Pear Tree Ep, to finally get it, and then, “this is amazing” hit me hard. “Thank You Mario But Our Princess Is In Another Castle”, is sung from the perspective of a toad and features a beautiful harmony between Kaki and John near the end of the song. My next favourite is the album starter, “Black Pear Tree” which is just Kaki Kings amazing voice, and everyone else being incredibly incredible and so on. Listen!
