The Decemberists - January Hymn/Row Jimmy

This new single off of the upcoming Decemberists album, The King Is Dead, is a nice folk-ey tune about a snowy day in January. Fitting for a very snowy day in December, eh? It's rather simple, mainly Colin and his guitar, with some other sounds in the back and some oohs and aahs. Kinda reminds me of Wonder from Colin's solo live album, in style and all that. Good track, and hopefully the rest of the album is as good as this and Down By The River (I'm not worried about that at all). The B-side to this is Row Jimmy, a Grateful Dead cover. I'm not much of a Dead, at all. But this cover is pretty decent.

Check out both songs below. The King Is Dead comes out January 18th
