…the hyper-literate Colin Meloy

This article from Pop Matters calls Meloy of the Decemberists “hyper-literate.” Not sure what that means, except possibly he reads a lot and uses big words in his songs. I guess that’s exactly what it means. I enjoy The Decemberists, and refer to them as a folk band, not because of their music but because of their stories–they are all mythic in nature, like well, a folk tale. Colin Meloy sings Sam Cooke seems like an interesting project.
