The Mountain Goats have just released a brand new song, “Cadaver Sniffing Dog”, from their forthcoming LP In League With Dragons. The whimsical folk-rock outfit have always had a flair for the dramatic, and this single sees that trend continue, as was to be expected. The song’s upbeat mood is tempered by minor keys and macabre lyrics, which is more often than not the modus operandi of John Darnielle and company. Check out the song below!
