That great new-song feeling

I first ran across the Mountain Goats a couple of years ago with their song 'No Children' (key line, 'I hope you die, I hope we both die'), which became one of those songs I listened to again and again, day after day, for weeks and weeks without it becoming old.

Simply the fact that they've written a song ('International Small Arms Traffic Blues') with the line "Our love is like the border between Greece and Albania / Trucks loaded down with weapons crossing over every night" makes me feel they should win some kind of special award or something.

Now, they've got a new song and a new album. I can't say much about the album, as it's not out yet.

But the song...the song, I think, is very good. Here it is.
