Album Review: The Decemberists - What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World (2015 LP)

What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World is the new album from indie rock, weird-folk band The Decemberists. It marks the end of a multi-year hiatus started in 2011, just after the release of their amazing sixth album The King Is Dead.

Single Stream: The Decemberists "A Beginning Song" (2015)

We're pretty excited that Portland rockers The Decemberists are blessing us with some new music so early in the year. "A Beginning Song" is the fourth they have shared from their upcoming LP What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World, stripping things back into a beautiful slow rock ballad that promises some great things for the album, which is scheduled to be released on January 20th. Funnily enough, January 20th has been named 'Decemberists Day' in the city of Portland, that's a pretty impressive honour.

After five days of music on the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm in a year, festival director Peter Noble called "their best ever year" at a press conference this morning; both in terms of lineup, and the way the festival was run - including new noise restraints that kept disruption to both people and wildlife to an absolute minimum - Bluesfest was brought to a close tonight for the 24th time, by the one and only Paul Simon.

The Decemberists - The King Is Dead (2011 LP)
