The Decemberists have been promoting their new album entitled The King Is Dead. This song isn't on it, but it does come from a recent KCRW session. It's a cover of R.E.M.'s classic "Cuyahoga", one of my personal favorites of theirs. Colin & Co. do great justice in their rendition.

Through every incarnation of Afghan Whigs and, now, The Twilight Singers, Dulli has successfully used the raw soul of his voice as a mechanism, allowing his songs and their lyrics the freedom to pick at the scabs of his world, mismanaging his emotional stability and his relationships -- with women, with the bottle, with himself.
