just a little something to brighten up a cold, grey November day

Over the weekend Paul and I were reminiscing about the amazing Decemberists' show we saw two Halloweens ago. The band came onstage dressed as characters from The Shining, which was awesome, esp. since the show was (quite oddly, I might add) at the very-conservative Wheaton College in a chapel. They have a new album -- The King is Dead (perhaps homage to my beloved Smiths?) -- coming out in January, and you can download a free track here. Yes, that is Peter Buck playing the guitar. :-)

Ooh, my stepdaughter loves them! I'm going to post the video too, if you don't mind :)

You like the Smiths too?! I'll have to check out the Decemberists' new album. You cannot have enough melancholy, esp. in November. :)

Thanks for the heads up. I love both the Smiths and the Decemberists.
