Even in February, The Decemberists make great walking-in-winter music.I recently rediscovered this album and have been pretty addicted.

Apparently the song is about a WWII battle, not the French Revolution, but we’ll forgive that.

and the war came with a curse and a caterwaul
and the war came with all the poise of a cannonball
and they’re picking out our eyes by coals and candlelight
when the war came, the war came hard
