The Decemberists – Castaways and Cutouts / 2002

This a very cool album. It’s at once familiar-sounding and oddly comforting but also conveys a real sense of melancholy. My teenagers didn’t like it when I played it to them, but I caught them singing along to July, July! the very next day. I couldn’t tell you my favourite track as they all form an essential part of the story. Just download the whole album – you won’t regret it. Castaways & Cutouts would also make a perfect gift on Father’s Day.
