Just wondered if anyone else has heard the latest release by the Decemberists: The Hazards of Love? I say release as opposed to album because it's really one long, continuous piece of music which tells a story. Literally. It's a musical fairy-tale, told through indie-folk-prog-rock, about disallowed love, jealousy, kidnapping, betrayal, sacrifice and death. And the ghosts of murdered children.

I have to say I'm thrilled I found this - I'd never heard of them, came across it by accident the day before it's release, and I absolutely love it. Check them out at http://www.decemberists.com or http://www.myspace.com/thedecemberists

But if you like them, you might like The Arcade Fire as well. This is a live perf w/David Bowie called 'Wake Up'.

Love 'em. Bloody love 'em. Remember the first time I saw them, on Jools Holland, and being stunned. Then listening to Funeral and being more stunned. Then Neon Bible came out, and I nearly died.

I can't watch youtube videos on this computer unfortunately (it's on it's last legs and doesn't like streaming anymore... it just takes forever), but I'll check out those links on a housemate's computer when it's not night time.

Yeah most all of their work is like that. I sent KatySara some of their stuff a while back.
