Bowerbirds' new album The Clearing

I've really been enjoying the wonderful new album by Raleigh's Bowerbirds (The Clearing, released March 5). On their last two albums there was a song that really jumped out at me from the middle of the pack as my favorite ("Olive Hearts" on 2007's Hymns for a Dark Horse and "Northern Lights" from 2009's Upper Air) but on this album it was the first song on the album: "Tuck the Darkness In." I love how it builds up to that wild ending. Listen to it loud (or with headphones); there's a really great official video for the song here:

The kids love it too.
