Stream The Mountain Goats & Anonymous 4's Ecstatic Music Festival performance

Mountain Goats

Over the weekend New York City’s Ecstatic Music Festival hosted Southern California lo-fi outfit the Mountain Goats and medievalist a cappella quartet Anonymous 4. The odd pairing took to the stage this Saturday, March 24 at Merkin Concert Hall for a stirring night of music.

First Anonymous 4 did an 11-song opening set, then the Mountain Goats came out for nine songs. The highlight of the night, though, came when the Mountain Goats and Anonymous 4 took the stage together to perform six tracks from the Mountain Goats’ forthcoming Transcendental Youth. Listen to the concert in full and check out the setlist below.
