The Mountain Goats & Kaki King

Black Pear Tree - The Mountain Goats & Kaki King (from the Black Pear Tree EP)

I remember reading quite a while ago that The Mountain Goats and Kaki King were going to collaborate and at the time I remember wondering what that would possibly sound like. Turns out the result is a wonderful collaboration that evidentially was only ever released as a small run for a tour which is just beyond reason. Because of this I had to find this by other means online but I am glad I did as it lead my ears to a wonderful EP. The push and pull from these two is perfect and their styles somehow match a lot better than I had expected. Here in the title track of the EP the delicate little voice from Kaki King is accompanied by piano and she sings as though channeling the vocal timing of John from the mountain goats. It’s a great match and if you can get your hands on this great music I suggest you do because its great and I hope to hear more from the two together in the future.
