SotW: The Decemberists' "Down by the Water"

3 Nov

Here is an excellent new single from The Decemberists, off the new album due out in January. Let’s get excited, nation. Though nothing will ever eclipse their debut (at least according to my ears; “Castaways and Cutouts” is on my list of desert island albums), they’re still one of the few reliably rock-solid bands out there.

    This song sounds seriously old, like it belongs on the oldies station. I think it’s the female-voiced harmony. Or the harmonica. Or the simple-ish percussion.

    I must listen to it fourteen more times to figure it out.
