Re: "The Official" Decemberists Thread

Nice Pictures Ak...a cool trait of the band is it's laid back look...just some average people makin' music.

Good song here from the new album

This Is Why We Fight

I agree I can see them playing around a camp fire. They closed the set with why we fight great song

Re: "The Official" Decemberists Thread

I heard a song from them last night, don't remember which:heheh:
But, I decided to check out the thread here, and that new album sounds great.. I'm definitely going to pick that one up:tup:

The more acoustic driven songs are really cool, but the electric ones almost remind me of that darker feel that Springsteen has on songs like The River, or most of the Nebraska Album..

I can't wait to hear the new album in it's entirety:grinthumb

I finally got my huge bundle of c.d.s in the mail and the new Decemberists was amongst them. Looking forward to listening to it! :grinthumb

The King Is Dead is an incredible album. Nice to hear some steel guitar on the backing tracks. Some of the songs remind me of old R.E.M., but this has a lot to do with Peter Buck helping out on some of the songs I suppose.

My favorite video version of The Mariner's Revenge Song.

while this is a great version, I don't consider it their best version. Part of the charm of this song is seeing it live with a whole audience acting along. nothing like a sea of people rocking back and forth like they are at a boat at sea. :)

This version is pretty cool too, it's performed by a school drama club or something.
