Black Prairie are from Portland, ergo they're all my neighbors. They may or may not (probably not, although vaguely I think maybe...) have something to do with 90s indie faves The Spinanes (indie fave=Wharton Rob liked them and introduced them to me, possibly in time for our 1994 virgin visit to Portland... when we were both 8 years old). I'm sure reading my confused ramblings from first thing in the morning are a highlight to your day. You're welcome.
The band definitely has something to do with my other neighbors' band, The Decemberists. 3 of the dudes in BP are also 3 of the Ds. Their second album, A Tear in the Eye Is a Wound in the Heart, features this track and coincidentally (or was it planned) their first official music video.
I like it a lot so you should too. More importantly, it will make you look super hip when you're buying khakis and this song comes on, you'll totes impress the sales clerk. Associate, the sales associate.
Just because he's folding slacks doesn't mean he's not a person.
