Late Night Music with Frank- the Decemberists
Sixteen Military Wives by the Decemberists
I recently purchased the Decemberists latest release The Hazards of Love. So far my take is that it's an incredibly in depth concept album with great musicality and writing chops which will take many listens before I get it. It's more prog rock than their previous efforts, yet still very much Colin Meloy.
I chose this diddy because when I think of the Decemberists I think of their roots in folk and their amazing charm. It was their light hearted wit and story telling that made me such a fan. This song seems to speak true to all the nonsense I heard all weekend on the Cable News Networks.
