The Decemberists

The Decemberists are arguably one of the most eccentric bands among contemporary indie acts, with their approach to songwriting owing more to storytelling and the tradition of naval seashantys than introspective exploration of moods. Having released 3 full length albums in their career to date, they were signed to Capitol Records in late 2005, and have reportedly startedwork on their major label debut album. This comes on the back of 2005's Picaresque, seen by many fans of independent music as being one of the most quietly delightful releases ofthe year, and taking the band beyond the level reached by them on their previous albums.
