As I was browsing ChrisB's list of releases today, I saw that The Decemberists' new album was out today. The band drew me into their fold with their last release, The Crane Wife, so I was curious to see how the two albums compared.
There are two streams of the album that I can find, on Entertainment Weekly (must sign up to listen) and on their Myspace (no login necessary).
What do you think of the band's latest material?
I was looking at the upcoming release calendar on Metacritic on Monday evening and found that quite a few records I had been looking forward to are finally being released this week. Overall, this looks like one of the best weeks for new releases in a long time.
Listening parties and NPR and new shows, oh my!
The winner of the Decemberists' The Hazards of Love Poster Design Contest has been announced and I am overjoyed to say it's our very own Corianton Hale and imaginary friend Kathryn Rathke!
Download "The Rake's Song" and don't miss the Decemberists NPR spot today!
Please, oh please, Mr. Meloy, let this one sound less like Jethro Tull and more like the Decemberists...
On October 14, the Decemberists will begin releasing the first of their three-part single series entitled, Always the Bridesmaid, available in both digital and 12" options.
I was at the Decemberists show on Thursday night and thought the band sounded better than any of the previous four times I had seen them.
But I need someone out here to confirm something about Wednesday's show.
Add this sadness to the ever-growing list of canceled shows...
