Before the massive spill of studio albums from the full The Mountain Goats band, frontman John Darnielle, under the same Mountain Goats moniker, released a small collection of studio material unavailable to fans outside of cassette collections.

Two of Darnielle’s early-90's albums, The Hound Chronicles and Hot Garden Stomp, will be reissued for digital and wide physical release via Shrimper Records; the same label that originally released the work. Check out the lengthy updated tracklist below for the 26 June release.
