Tarkio: Omnibus
Buy! - (Kill Rock Stars)
It's true, I love the Decemberists. So when I found out that Kill Rock Stars was reissuing Tarkio, the band Collin Meloy was in before the Decemberists, I was stoked. It's a great alt-country indie rock record, and very insightful. As the songs progress you can see how Melloy's written style matures from the straightforward to the literary and whimsical lyrics of today's Decemberists. Good stuff! 4/10/2006 - Rachel
