Posted By on Tue, Mar 3, 2009 at 11:12 AM

(Via Chromewaves) New York published a really fantastic profile of Mountain Goats principle (and ex-RFT freelancer) John Darnielle this weekend. Author Stephen Rodrick explores the deeply personal relationship the band's fans have with its music (via the worldview of a college student named Stephen Wesley) and Darnielle himself, and the stresses and repercussions of such intimacy. Even if you don't like the band, the article is well-written and psychologically revealing; go check it out. Bonus: Here's an interview Darnielle did with three of our writers in 2006.
