I alight like a whisper
I alight with the lights out
And it won't take me long just to find you
And it won't take me long just to find you

I'm allied to the winter
But don't you get clever
Don't you get clever
I'm allied to the landslide
Gonna leave you all severed
Gonna leave you all severed

I alone am the answer
I alone will make wrongs right
But in order to root out the cancer
It's got to be kept from the sight

I'm allied to the winter
But don't you get clever
Don't you get clever
I'm allied to the landslide
Gonna leave you all severed
Gonna leave you all severed

I was born to a jackal
I was born in a whiteout
Gonna smother you all till I choke you
Gonna smother you all till you kick out

I'm allied to the winter
But don't you get clever
Don't you get clever
I'm allied to the landslide
Gonna leave you all severed
Gonna leave you all severed

Gawd...this is even worse than all the previous Decemberist songs. No other band on RP makes me race as quickly to the PSD button!

 

I hear you. I hit PSD asap when they come one BUT I'm liking this one.

Yeah, interesting stuff. I'll wait a bit before rating this but I'm liking it tonight.

How hip is this Decemberist tune. Transcends so many eras of great music. Well selected.
There seems to be a trend towards the "techno" sound with a few bands these days....hmmmmmm
But I am seeing them live next month!!!!
I like the Decemberists, but this... well... this just might be their Kid A.

Such a great live act.  Have fun!

I'm a big Decembeists fan, and this is such a surprising change in direction... Love it! Can't wait for the new album

Agree!!! I started turning it off when I hear it on the radio now since it's played way to much there too. 

 
I guess I was trying to demonstrate that the math showed 1 play every 3 days. That doesn't seem over played to me. A radio station would probably play it 3 times per day. Just a guess on my part. I stopped listening to the radio when I found RP over a dozen years ago.

As of now: 11 times in the last 30 days = ~ 1 every three days.

Been hearing this rotate a lot through Bill's playlist. Must mean it's a new album!  Looking forward to this bold sound coming in March. 
The guitar sounds a bit Ricky Wilson-ish (the one from the B-52s).
Ha ha ha is anyone else hearing Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap for second there?

BTW, that is not a bad thing and this is excellent.
What a change, but still making me tap my feet....
This track has me excited to hear the rest of the album!
