Well i look like Strerogum have out scoop all the other blog for a sneak preview video and form word i hear could be late contender for the best album of 2006.
It from the Long a waited album for the Portland, Oregan, The Decemberists from there Forth album and Major lable debut(Capitol Records) The Crane Wife
It was produced by Chris Walla, and will be the band's first album on the Capitol Records label. An apparently unfinished version of "The Island" was played and briefly streamed on KEXP by Sean Nelson of Harvey Danger fame, but has since been taken down. Other than that and live versions of "O Valencia", "Summersong" and "Shankhill Butchers", none of the songs have yet been heard. Sons and Daughters, which are assumed to have inspired the last track's name, are a Scottish band that opened for The Decemberists for several dates on their tour for Picaresque.
The album was inspired by a Japanese folk tale, and will center around two song cycles, The Crane Wife and The Island.
