    EatSleepMusic, this makes perfect sense, I agree.

    "Within sight of the baroness, seething spite for this lithe largesse, by her side sits the baron, her barrenness barbs her" Just epic word-nerdery right there. Well-played, Colin Meloy.

    Sharpur, it never said that the elephant was carrying the palanquin. It just said she was on an elephant's back. So, obviously, the titular character rides on the back of the elephant, and the elephant is riding on the palanquin, which is carried by humans, and the humans are carried by the earth, which is carried by a giant turtle whose gender is unknown. This is why it's a palanquin and not a howdah. Obviously.

    Without the vocals, this would be the 2nd coming of the Ventures

    Of course you don't actually put a palanquin on an elephant, that would be a howdah. I'm willing to overlook the error in context however. ;)

    You've listened to The Decemberists, but not The Infanta. Glad we could nip that sad situation in the bud. Great song!

    As said by Cobra-65, I heard this song and found The Decemberists through Mad Men. I now own most of all their albums. One of my favourite recently discovered bands, although the missus doesn't get them. Power to them all, love ya!

    I discovered this band via "Mad Men". They featured it at the end of one of their typically amazing episodes, Season 2 I think, and I remember thinking, "Wow, what an incredible song!" I never heard anything like it before or since.

    Just recently discovered The Mountain Goats and started a station for them. It's like a whole genre I've never heard of before. I didn't know indie could be good.

    I think the sound at the beginning is the infamous howl of the Black Momba snake.

    Yep those first twenty seconds were kind of scary; I pictured someone being chased through the woods at night, with that sound echoing around the forest. Spooky.
