The Decemberists

The new Decemberists album, Picaresque, is great. It’s a bit early, maybe, but I think this will be their masterpiece album, their Boy with the Arab Strap or their OK Computer, the album they’ll be spending the rest of their career trying to match.

Cheer them on to their rivals,
’cause America can, and America can’t say no.
And America does if America says it’s so, it’s so.
And the anchorperson on TV goes
“La-di-da-di-da.”

— 16 Military Wives

Speaking of Radiohead and Belle & Sebastian… Radiohead are starting their next album and Belle & Sebastian are releasing a “best of” CD — I remember when they were so prolific they couldn’t make CDs fast enough, now they’re just making compilations?!
