When the Mountain Goats got together in March 2020, it was to make not one album, but two.

The idea was to again work with Matt Ross-Spang, the dashing Memphis wunderkind. Matt pitched to spend a week at Sam Phillips Recording, his home base in Memphis, followed by another at the storied Fame Recording Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, a plan that dovetailed nicely with John’s notion of corralling these songs into two complementary batches: one light, one dark.

The Memphis album "Getting Into Knives", would be brighter, bolder, marked by rich and vibrant hues; the Muscle Shoals album "Dark in Here", is quieter, smokier, but more deeply textured and intense.
