My Music Monday

Artists backing artists - and then using the backing as the main draw the following week. Yes, in print, it's confusing, but you'll survive. 

Up this week, the Decemberists. While more popular at some points in their career, they are still an indie band with a pretty much limited following - though I own about half of their output. 

I'm not sure they made a more commercial (and that's relatively speaking) disk than 2011's the King is Dead. It is probably their most accessible disk - and the irony here is they utilize Gillian Welch on 7 of the 10 songs. Welch is more indie than the band themselves - though I love her. 

As there are seven songs from which to choose, I could go for the one that is the most recognizable, but that's not usually who I am.  So instead of "Down By the Water", you're getting "Dear Avery".
