Mountain Goats leader John Darnielle has earned plenty of critical and popular acclaim for his literate lyrics and homages to American music of ages past. Now, as a trio, the Mountain Goats have returned with their 17th album in 18 years as a band, "The Life of the World to Come."

Taking inspiration from Bible verses and no-frills Americana, the new album touches on themes of religion and spirituality. The Mountain Goats played the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis this past weekend with Canadian avant-garde violinist Final Fantasy.

Songs performed: "Isaiah 45:23," "No Children" and "Ezekiel 7 and the Permanent Efficacy of Grace."
