Originally a solo project from author, songwriter, and singer John Darnielle, indie folk/rock group The Mountain Goats have slowly added new members — Peter Hughes, Jon Wurster, Matthew Douglas and more — as well as new music. Their latest album, the 15th in the band’s history, is titled Beat the Champ (2015), and focuses on professional wrestling. Thanks to Darnielle’s skilled wordplay, the album doesn’t limit its scope to what’s between the ropes, but uses the theme as a jumping off point to explore childhood and how people present themselves to the public.
