I wasn't going to do an M. Ward mp3 post, because the mp3 blog community is saturated with them already, and besides, you can stream the entire Transistor Radio album on the Merge site. It's like posting an Arcade Fire mp3.
But this is irresistable, from the opening guitar lines straight from a classic western to the drums that build in suspense, and seem to announce the arrival of an outlaw to a dusty town center. I surrender.
M. Ward - Four Hours in Washington (mp3)
