Stream: The Decemberists - Yankee Bayonet

Pitchfork has posted streaming audio of Yankee Bayonet, a new song from the upcoming Decemberists album, The Crane Wife, which I am very much looking forward to. Last year's Picaresque finished second in the MAOTY rankings.

The Crane Wife is the band's major-label debut (Capitol) and apparently they've described it as their weirdest album to date, which I guess would be bucking some trends. Bob Boilen and Co. played a clip of one song on NPR's All Songs Considered and it was vintage prog rock, but they say the album as a whole is as catchy as anything they've done. Yankee Bayonet is a bit more straightforward than the NPR clip, but it's more than enough to fan the flames.
