The Mountain Goats celebrate a new Twitter milestone with an old unreleased track

Back in November, John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats commemorated reaching 25,000 Twitter followers by dropping a previously unreleased lo-fi track titled “Thucydides II-58”. And today, having just reached the milestone of 40,000 followers, Darnielle has released another old demo titled “All Devils Here Now,” which is available as a free download on The Mountain Goats’ website. The acoustic track—featuring “actual Iowa bugs” in the background—shares “psychic and geographic space” with the other material Darnielle was writing between the releases of Tallahassee and We All Shall Be Healed, and it indeed recalls the theme of discontent of the former, expressed with the more resigned and restrained vocals of some of the lower-key tracks on the latter.
