The Decemberists: “Down by the Water”

The Decemberists’ new album – The King is Dead – will be out in mid-January, and here’s the first track: “Down by the Water!”  The track features some excellent guitar work from R.E.M’s Peter Buck and Gillian Welch, and is a remarkable return to form after the sometime-excellent, oft-bewildering Hazards of Love.  Have a listen, and then go grab the track in exchange for your soul e-mail address.
