Tarkio, "Omnibus" (Kill Rock Stars, 2006).

So yesterday was "The Decemberist post." And today will be dedicated to Tarkio, Colin Meloy's former band. This is just straight Americana, and the album is some kind of retrospective Kill Rock Stars released early this year. For fans of The Decemberists, this album never comes close to reaching the majestic heights of, say, 'Los Angeles, I'm Yours," but for people who actually enjoy laid-back, this is a perfect record for crackin' open a beer, on a patio, in the sun. This record won't change the world but it can make it a more enjoyable place to drink beer on a patio.
