Calamity Song - The Decmberists

This is a great song from The Decemberists 2011 album "The King Is Dead", one of my favorite albums of 2011 by far. Colin Malloy, the singer and primary song writer said in an interview that this album was conceived as an homage to early REM (they even have REM guitarist Peter Buck playing guitar on several tracks), that being one of his earliest influences. They do an amazing job of converging the REM mojo with their own sound and this track is a perfect example. It also rocks!
