The Decemberists Picaresque 2LP
Double LP Includes 5 Tracks Not On CD!
For two years, the Decemberists have been on an upward arc, finally getting
their due and triumphing over the sinister aspects of the music industry.
They've gone from unknowns outside their native Portland to success in every
column of the rock band tallysheet-critical praise, impressive sales figures,
packed houses of adoring fans here and abroad.
Produced by Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie) in a Portland church that was also
being used as a daycare center, with "Picaresque" the Decemberists have recorded
their fullest sounding release yet, all ambitions fulfilled. The quintet blazes
through more instrumental variations than can be listed here, for a heightened
urgency and depth to the sharply written lyrical scenarios. "Picaresque" will
bowl over the most optimistic fans.
