Today’s song of the day comes from The Decemberists, an Indie Folk Rock band from Portland, Oregon. They are a group of multi-talented musicians that came together in 2000. The name was inspired by the Decembrist Revolt in Russia back in 1825. One of the interesting comments I have seen several times about this song is that it sounds very similar to The One I Love by R.E.M. With a little research, I discovered that Peter Buck of R.E.M. plays in three of the tracks on the latest album and this is one of them. During their concerts they love to get the audience involved, even going as far as having them act out the songs.

This song is a good sneak peek if you are planning to attend the Twilight Concert Series in Salt Lake City, Utah tonight.
