A favourite of ours at Spotisfaction, The Decemberists have just released their latest album The King Is Dead (Spotify). A slight departure from their previously epic orchestra-like arrangements, this album seems to be stripped back and raw; a quality that is making the album grow on me hugely.
The good news is that The King Is Dead is on Spotify, and the band are touring this album later in the year!
