The Decemberists' sixth, full-length studio outing finds the Portland, Oregon-based indie rock collective exploring a region that has thus far eluded them. Raised on a steady diet of Morrissey, Robyn Hitchcock, Shirley Collins, and Fairport Convention, The King Is Dead represents frontman Colin Meloy's first foray into the musical traditions of his homeland, or more specifically, it proves that he really, really likes R.E.M. “Calamity Song,” which is one of three tracks to feature guitar work from Peter Buck, threatens to break into “Pretty Persuasion” or “So. Central Rain (I’m Sorry)” at any moment, and first single “Down by the Water” flirts with “The One I Love” hard enough to take it on a long weekend, though Meloy has stated that the track “started out as more of a paean to R.E.M. than I think any of us really wanted it to.” David Rawlings and Gillian Welch also join the party on a number of tracks, lending their instantly recognizable voices to two of the album’s finest moments, the Wildflowers-era, Tom Petty-inspired “Don’t Carry It All,” and the lovely, Paul Simon-esque “June Hymn” -- Meloy and Welch, the former a Montana-born Anglophile and the latter a California girl with a fetish for dustbowl Appalachia -- harmonize nicely, canceling out each other’s vocal affectations. It’s a refreshing change from the usual compilation of bibliophile, sea shanty/murder ballad, and while the Led Zeppelin III-style rural overhauling may isolate fans who prefer the serpentine, progressive, art rock of albums like The Crane Wife and Hazards of Love, it opens up a whole new continent for the band to explore. © James Christopher Monger /TiVo

Hi-Res
Les Decemberists continuent leur percée dans une scène folk américaine sage taillée pour les ondes, comme en témoigne le premier titre Once in My Life. Les pistes longues, les envolées instrumentales et les accents celtiques que pouvaient exhaler The Crane Wise (2006) sont loin, le folk terreux qui caractérisait la bande de Portland s’effaçant déjà au fil des albums jusqu’au moderne What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World. I’ll Be Your Girl les voit poursuivre leur mue. Homogène d'un bout à l’autre, oscillant entre ballades mélancoliques et mélodies douces, ce huitième opus confié à la production de John Congleton (St. Vincent, Swans ou Could Nothing) dont la patte semble résolument agir sur le curieux We All Die Young, s’enfonce un peu plus dans un rock américain poli. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Le groupe folk revient avec What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World qui invite à un petit voyage pop sur fond de mélodies fluides. Un album pas forcément révolutionnaire mais qui a l’avantage d’être doux et chill. The Decemberists livrent une folk sans banjo ni accordéon cette fois, mais avec quelques notes de synthé (Mistral), d’harmonica (12/17/12) et une bonne dose de mélancolie exempte de tristesse. What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World tend plutôt vers le côté optimiste et se clôt par un titre saturé mais pas énervé, A Beginning Song. © LR/Qobuz

Recorded while the band was on tour for their chart-topping album, The King Is Dead, We All Raise Our Voices to the Air captures the remarkably tight live performances of Portland indie band the Decemberists. Though their last full-length studio album found the band moving toward a simpler, more Americana-influenced sound, the live set finds the band recapturing the intricate and ornate sound of their earlier work, making full use of multi-instrumentalists Chris Funk and Jenny Conlee as the band works is way through this career-spanning set. While roughly a third of the material comes (understandably) from The King Is Dead, the band hits all the high points, belting out classics like "The Bagman's Gambit," "Billy Liar," and all three parts of the "Crane Wife" suite. Combine the stellar set list with the band's affable, easygoing stage presence and singer Colin Meloy's banter (which includes a detour at the hilariously bad "Dracula's Daughter," a song Meloy himself has referred to as the worst song he ever wrote) and you have a recipe for an album that almost feels like a greatest-hits compilation. Normally, a live album without a ton of rarities would be a hard sell to fans of the band, but We All Raise Our Voices to the Air is such a strong set of performances that even Decemberists diehards might have a hard time passing up on this one. More importantly, however, is that the album gives new fans the ability to experience the band's music without the layer of carefully cultivated shroud of preciousness that can be a bit daunting for anyone unfamiliar with what they might be getting themselves into. © Gregory Heaney /TiVo

In January 2015, the Decemberists released What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, the group's seventh studio album and one of their most ambitious offerings to date. In fact, the album was ambitious enough that a number of songs recorded for the album simply didn't make the cut. Florasongs, released nine months later, is an EP featuring five previously unreleased selections recorded during the What a Terrible World sessions. Including the debut single "Why Would I Now," Florasongs further demonstrates the Decemberists' unique style and continued strengths as musicians and songwriters. © Mark Deming /TiVo

Long Live the King, a six-track EP recorded around the same time as the R.E.M.-inspired King Is Dead, opens with “E. Watson,” a spare, moody tale of a sugar cane plantation owner named Edgar Watson, which couldn’t be further from the sunny rural folk jamboree glow that permeated the band's 2011 full-length. That said, the rest of the EP, outside of the brooding “Burying Davy,” leans closer to that countrified feel, and while it may come off a little contrived at times (Colin Meloy's nasally, faux-British croon stands out like vegan pork gravy on a cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Row Jimmy”), these outtakes will no doubt help to satiate fans until the group reconvenes for album number seven. © James Christopher Monger /TiVo
