My Music Monday

At the end of 2010, I marked the Decemberists then new song, Down by the Water, to be one of my favourite songs of the year, even though their album wasn't going to be released until 2011.

I still hold to that, and I might make an exception and carry over this song for the 2011 list as well.

The disk is a good one and I expect it to show up on the 2011 list as well, but probably not as the top one of the year, but we will see. 

But the song is really good, though there is no "official" video for it.  Gillian Welch does a great job on the song and album providing harmony vocals - and is kind of a better gig than her own new release.

So the accompanying video is a live performance on Conan.   Enjoy.

It has that Ettinger mix of Cowboy Junkies, REM, and all the lonely cowgirls in the USA>

I continue to be amazed at how knowledgeable you are When it comes to music. You continually introduce us to groups I have never heard!

Love it! REM-ish, yes! Also made me think of Blue Rodeo!
Adding this one on my list!
