Chief DecemberistColin Meloy's embarking on his first solo tour in five years soon, which means he'll release his first Colin Meloy Sings... covers EP in five years soon too - this time it's Colin Meloy Sings The Kinks, which includes covers of five jams from throughout The Kinks' catalog.  You'll only be able to get the EP if you catch him live, but you can sample one of the covers now, this acoustic rendering of "Do You Remember Walter?" from The Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society. We wish Meloy had done a version of "Lola," but this is definitely an acceptable stand-in - check it out (via NPR).
