Tallahassee Turns Ten Logo

On November 5th, 2002 The Mountain Goats released Tallahassee. Artists and fans across genres love John Darnielle's wordy, probing songs; and for many, Tallahassee was the album that made us fall in love. To celebrate its tenth birthday, Crooked Neighbor has commissioned fifteen bands to cover the album's fourteen songs (and one b-side), creating Tallahassee Turns Ten: A Mountain Goats Cover Album.

The money from selling the compact disc version of the album went to supporting Farm Sanctuary. You can download the record at Bandcamp.
