New Decemberists “Down By The Water”

November 16, 2010

This measured folky attack by the The Decemberists will be on their new album The King Is Dead expected to drop January 18th.  These 10 country-based tracks provide a move away from the headbanging cuts on their previous album The Hazards of Love. The Decemberists had stones of gold when I saw them at Sasquatch when they toured for THOL, which is respectable for a band lacking any sound of sack on any of their previous albums.  On their new record Colin Meloy notes: “For all my talk about how complex those [previous] records were, this one may have been harder to do,” he says. “It’s a real challenge to make simple music, and lot of times we had to deliberately hold off and keep more space. This record is an exercise in restraint.”
