The Decemberists: A Short Musical History

With the Crane Wife approaching us very quickly, I think it is important to look back and see what they have done before this. I'm going to choose one of my favorite songs from each album or EP. I'm also including a track from Tarkio, which is Colin Meloy's band before he was in the Decemberists. I hope you all go out and buy the Crane Wife and enjoy it. If you like any of the other songs, buy the album! You'll probably like it, too.

Castaways and Cutouts The Decemberists - Grace Cathedral Hill

The TainI'm not going to post one for this, because it needs to be listened to as a whole (although I really like IV)
