the decemberists

Post by TheBeff » Sun Nov 28, 2004 5:27 pm

are amazing. confirm/deny?

i've been listening to "Her Majesty" over and over again and i hear something new everytime. the lyrics are beautiful and the music unique. some say they sound a little too much like neutral milk hotel, but i disagree. NMH is incredible, but the decemberists have their own sound and identity. I 100% recommend listening to this.

Good, but not awesome IMO.

Hey, I think they're pretty cool. Their new one drops in March '05, and it's something I'm looking forward to, especially with the direction that they're heading off to in The Tain. I always like music that takes me to a different place, especially when they're populated with legionnaires, women in petticoats, and chimbley sweeps. :)

You know you want it. Live versions of two songs from their forthcoming (and now-retitled) album, Picaresque:

The Sporting Life
The Bandit Queen

I was warned initially that they were a Neutral Milk Hotel rip-off, but I have to say I do really like The Decemberists. I keep coming back to all of their stuff, and I'm looking forward to the next album.

Kean, you didn't link to the seriously pretty cover of the Joanna Newsom song that they did. So I will!

That's because I linked to it last month in the Joanna Newsom thread. So nyah. XP
