Musical Obsession of the Moment: The Decemberists’ “O Valencia!”

I think that if you ignore the start and end of this video and pay attention to the part that’s set to music – you know, the music video part – you can discover greatness within.

“O Valencia!” sounds quite different to the rest of the material on The Crane Wife album, but it’s not difficult to say that about an album which doesn’t have a consistent sound. It’s my first album by The Decemberists, and all I can describe it as is “kinda folksy”. They’re essentially an intermittent break from my constant listening to the Dreamgirls deluxe edition soundtrack.

So if you listen to this song, good times may abound! Just watch the epilogue at your own risk.
