* From the excellent, exuberant new Decemberists disc The Crane Wife, this song will remind you more than a little bit of The Talking Heads (specifically, of Life During Wartime), but made wholly unique by Colin Meloy's staunchly old-fashioned wordsmithing and vocal style.

** Awesome new-ish punk stylings from the Portland, Oregon crew, highlighted by Hutch Harris talking/screaming/whining lyrics like
"We built too many walls...
Yeah, we built too many walls!
And now we've got to run:
A giant piston's out to crush us."

*** "Better than 'Promiscuous'", says the lithe and lovely dancing machine DGlass.
