New Decemberists Song


So last night Colin Meloy played in Seattle and the reports coming back are nothing but wonderful. As you might know, he and his girlfriend Carson Ellis (who does all of the artwork for the Decemberists' releases) are expecting a child in early March. Well at the show last night, he debute a new song all about the wonders of procreation, mostly having to do with the conception of their child. Many thanks toa member of the Decemberists message board for upping this!

Weird and Wonderful

EDIT: I decided to take this down, because apparently there is to be no taping on Colin's solo tour, because Kill Rock Stars is going to release a live album culled from stuff from the tour. So he's asked that people not record, and if they do, not to share.

What message board is this info from? Their official board doesn't seem to be getting updated very often, and I'd love to see the setlist from this show.

I love the Decemberists -- and I've got a kid -- but this makes me want to listen to Lightning Bolt all day ...
