The Decemberists are from Portland, Oregon and are releasing The Crane Wife on October 3, to continue Colin Meloy's literary rock journey, their fourth LP. The album is promised to fill 60 minutes with eleven tracks. Donning their usual vintage wear, this release is their first major label bow with Capitol Records since leaving Kill Rock Stars.
Picaresque, their last album (which I listened exaustively) was produced by Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie) and boy... he can make any good band sound like a great band!
