The other day in the mail I got my latest edition of the Decemberists' Always a Bridesmaid: A Singles Series, this edition month's 12" vinyl being the lovely "Days of Elaine" backed with "Days of Elaine (long)" and "I'm Sticking With You." The songs are truly great and the vinyl is beautiful. If you haven't bought the vinyl, I strongly recommend it. You can buy "Days of Elaine"and other Decemberists goodies here. Or buy the first two volumes of Always a Bridesmaid on iTunes.
And last week the group popped in on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and played "Days of Elaine." Here's the video.
