About S.W.V.

Slow West Vultures is a site dedicated to publishing work that, in some way, is about the Mountain Goats. The Mountain Goats are a band. They have several studio albums and dozens of fans across the country. Slow West Vultures is a product of some of those fans and is not endorsed by or affiliated with the Mountain Goats.

The name of this website is the name of a track on the album “We Shall All Be Healed.” It is also a nod to another blog that followed the “adjective-adjective-species of bird” naming scheme. From 2011-2015,  Sad Young Cardinals did what this blog aims to do, but appears now to be defunct. If you’re the person behind Sad Young Cardinals and you feel that we are stepping on your toes, I apologize.
