If April 6 can't come soon enough for you, click on over to NPR for a first peak of Feast of the Hunters' Moon, the latest soundtrack from the Twilight films.

Wait, what? Feast of the Hunters' Moon isn't about werewolves with chiseled abs? It's the debut album from Black Prairie? Huh, who knew?

Black Prairie is made up of 60% Decemberist (the remaining 40% is carbon), and their lovely expanded take on (mostly instrumental) bluegrass makes for one fine recording. The band's CD release, and Portland debut, will be this Thursday at the Woods.
