Just discovered this four-minute-long Decemberists tune has a nine-minute-long video (head to the two-minute mark if you’re after the start of the music).
Rarely are star-crossed lovers so besieged by gangs of thugs that intend to do them in. Three revenge-seeking mobs are after Colin Meloy and the boss’ daughter in this one, and they’re not above working together to get the job done. Not even Chuck Norris could escape this deathtrap.
“O Valencia!” comes from 2006’s The Crane Wife. The Decemberists released their latest full-length—What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World—earlier this year and have an EP out next month.
