Re: Suggest an album.

I've been listening to Anais Mitchell's new album Hadestown quite a bit lately. It's being advertised as a folk opera and is a retelling of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, set during America's great depression. Which sounds overly artsy and weird, I know, but it worked on me.

I had trouble deciding which songs to link to directly, because this album is very much a "whole is greater than the sum of its parts" sort of deal. So I'm not sure how to sell this, but I definitely think its worth checking out (if you like folkish music).
