New Decemberists CD

Picture 1.png

The Decemberists‘ new album, The Crane Wife, is out. I wasn’t even expecting a new album, even after I bought the single on iTunes last week. It’s not quite the same as previous albums, it’s more 70s rock than the kinda folky-shanty that I thought they sounded like on older albums. I swear The Island has a little classic rock (Deep Purple?) keyboard in it, very weird.

For crying out loud, they have a MySpace page. Isn’t MySpace uncool yet? Wait til the kids find out that the eXtreme-unhip Rupert Murdoch owns it.
