What do folksy indie kids and CIA operatives have in common?

… I know.  What the fuck.

BUT the Decemberists, of all people, have in fact recorded a song about the infamous Valerie Plame, and it will be the first track on their Always a Bridesmaid series out this October.  It’s a far cry from The Crane Wife, but power to them.  I think it’s hilarious.  And the horns section sounds awesome. 

The first volume of Always a Bridesmaid will be out October 14; the Decemberists will also be playing Cornell November 11.  Let’s start a carpool?
