The Moutain Goats - John Darnielle as America's #1 lyricist?

I'm not sure what it says about you, as an artist, when you get a rigorous treatment in The New Yorker, but it has to mean something. Hence, when I came across the following New Yorker article about John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats, I was intrigued. In particular, the author proclaims Darnielle to be "America’s best non-hip-hop lyricist." He may be right. In light of that, I enjoy the lyrics of the song Woke Up New. The Mountain Goats even put out a really cool video for it. Enjoy.
