The Mountain Goats launched their summer tour yesterday in Minneapolis, and to celebrate are giving away a free MP3 for "High Hawk Season" from their acclaimed new album All Eternals Deck. Pitchfork hailed the track as one of the album's highlights, describing it as "a call to power" and "one of Darnielle's pinnacles as both a bandleader and songwriter."
