I’m not sure what it means. That said, you can hear this if you go over here for the next week or so and wait for the fifth song. It’s a lovely little thing because while it has that quick, sharp rush so familiar from Mr. Darnielle’s songs, the instrumentation is all cello, and the contrast of voice and strings works snappily where the tendency of so many others would be to slow it all down and be vaguely melancholy. And of course this further shows that Mr. D still loves him his pop and knows how to make it work.
