The King is Dead

The Decemberizers have sent their latest to NPR’s First Listen two weeks before its release date. It’s their best stuff since Crane Wife, and having Gillian Welch along for seven tracks was a great idea. Lead Decemberist Colin Meloy, while pining for the 10 minute song days of yore, acknowledges this album as a return to a more American style after several albums of English influence. I’m liking it.
