Accordion Noir radio playlist 2009-07-24: Decemberists In July

AccNoir 2009-07-24


From ten years ago, perhaps to celebrate the release of the album “the Hazards of Love” (or a local concert at the Vogue promoting the same) by accordion supergroup the Decemberists, we programmed an episode (number 138) full of the finest accordionic folk-pop.  At its original online home it garnered some 9443 listens, and as usual we hope that it eventually does at least that well up at its new, permanent online home at the Internet Archive, where you can listen to it today!  Here’s its playlist:
