Product Description

Recorded at Tulsa, Oklahoma’s legendary The Church Studio with Grammy-winning producer/engineer Trina Shoemaker, Jenny from Thebes is a lush collection of showtunes, pushing Darnielle as a vocalist and the Mountain Goats as a band, broadening their sonic palette once again by leaning into influences like Godspell, Jim Steinman, and The Cars. Lifted by Matt Douglas’ horn and string arrangements, the dreamy guitar of Bully leader
(and Bleed Out producer) Alicia Bognanno, and backing vocals from Kathy Valentine of The Go-Go’s and Matt Nathanson, Jenny from Thebes is a widescreen musical in scope, a melodrama of richly detailed characters and sweeping emotions. Tracks: SIDE A 1. Clean Slate 2. Ground Level 3. Only One Way 4. Fresh Tattoo 5. Cleaning Crew 6. Murder at the 18th St. Garage SIDE B 7. From the Nebraska Plant 8. Same as Cash 9. Water Tower 10.
