If you didn't read the news on Pitchfork today, go and check out because oh my word, their new album Hazards of Love sounds like it's going to be epic. Talking to Rolling Stone,
It’s a twisty, fantastical story about a woman named Margaret who is ravaged by a shape-shifting animal; her lover, William, who is desperate for the two of them to be reunited; a forest queen; and a villainous rake. “There’s a story there, but it’s really painted with broad strokes,” says Meloy.Look for Hazards of Love around the end of March 2009!
AND the Decemberists just played a show in Michigan last week and you can go get a recording of the show in FLAC lossless format here. Thanks very much to the recorder! It's great quality and the closer is a new chapter to "Hazards of Love" that is just beautiful! (If you don't know anything about FLAC I'd recommend you look here about converting FLAC files to MP3s for your own use, not to be redistributed).
