I will be buying The Crane Wife, The Decemberists' new album.

This is the personal equivalent of saying “I'm going to give Pearl Jam or Hootie or Jewel or Coldplay one more chance.”

I'm apparently so interested in hearing this album, I just dreamt I was interviewing the band on their tour bus.

Fortunately, we avoided hitting the herd of foot tall livestock and missed any injury from the rampaging heroin addict.

i really like The Decemberists. The first time I heard them I hated them. But they've grown on me.

I haven't heard their new album, though.

I've only heard a minute, but it had more in common with prog rock (Pink Floyd, Genesis, &c.) than anything else.

In addition to the Son House you sent me, I've been listening to some Lomax stuff that kicks ass.

Sweet. One has to be careful. I recently ran across some "remasterings" which sounded like someone just slapped a low-pass filter on the recordings to eliminate the static. Killed the soul of the songs, you know?

Did you ever hear of the pair of scientists who digitize old recordings using a surface scanning laser-type thing?

The results were completely arresting.
