Always wonderful when we have something new from The Mountain Goats. Beat the Champ has an interesting concept and based on the early airplay, it will not disappoint. 

Here is a little about the new album from Mr. Darnielle
Beat the Champ is about professional wrestling, which was an avenue of escape for me when I was a kid. Wrestling was low-budget working class entertainment back then, strictly UHF material. It was cheap theater. You had to bring your imagination to the proceedings and you got paid back double. I wrote these songs to re-immerse myself in the blood and fire of the visions that spoke to me as a child, and to see what more there might be in them now that I'm grown.
