2008 reissue vinyl pressing from the 2004 album by John Darnielle's main project, The Mountain Goats. The song "Cotton" was featured in an episode of the television series Weeds. The album focuses on semi-fictional accounts of Darnielle's years as a teenager, particularly his friends' and acquaintances' experiences in California and in Portland, Oregon, as methamphetamine addicts. Per their website "All of the songs on (this CD) are based on people John used to know. Most of them are probably dead or in jail by now." the general musical framework within which The Mountain Goats have worked for ten-plus years has been acoustic guitar, bass, and voice. The lyrics are central to the whole enterprise.
