Lately I’ve been thinking that Colin Meloy’s singing voice sounds like how I always imagined Reverend Dimmesdale from The Scarlet Letter sounded in the pulpit. Also, looking at him, I’d never have guessed his voice would be so…..sharp? Would have the type of timbre that it has? To me he sounds like a small, thin, reedy type of guy…..fidgety and tense. And then here he is in overalls (and yes, I did and still do wear this same style).
