The Decemberists

The show begins with The Decemberists' "We All Die Young," a bleakly funny track from the band's latest album I'll Be Your Girl. "We all die young," a chorus of children scream almost cheerfully, in a comical reminder of our impermanence. Also on the show: the gentle, acoustic folk of Bermuda Triangle, a super duper group of sorts with Alabama Shakes lead singer Brittany Howard and singers Becca Mancari and Jess Lafser; the beautiful spare arrangements of Tom Gallo; jangly indie-pop with fantastic harmonies from Shy Boys; and Bon Iver members Justin Vernon and S.

Last night I had the strangest dream/I never dreamed before/I dreamed the world had all agreed/to lie down quietly next Tuesday evening at 7PM, close your collective eyes, and let the dreams flow, as Something Completely Different wanders into the World of Dreams and finds a wonderful bunch of songs brought back into the World of Consciousness from the Land of Sleep. 

About Something Completely Different this week - host Roland Jacopetti writes:  

"I hope all of you enjoyed last Tuesday's Something Completely Different as much as I did. I was so taken with the music that I forgot to introduce you to a statement from the late Townes Van Zandt, in the notes of his posthumous album A Far Cry From Dead.
