>Christmas, Leeks and Sheep

>

I’m afraid the White Stripes obituary has sapped my typing strength so I’m not offering a lengthy album review but highly recommend the new Decemberists album. They have made the wise move of getting the wonderful Gillian Welch on board and her vocal compliments Meloy perfectly to create a country sound which reminds me of Heartbreaker (unsurprisingly given the Welch connection) and Cassadega. There is possibly a hint of REM too – if not in the style of music but Meloy’s vocal does have a touch of Stipe in places.

Enjoy the tasters below and track down this album!
