Am I the only person in the world who wishes The Decemberists would plug something in again? That riff is so fly. Why does the Wiki not have a gear list. Disappointed in you, Internet.

Inclined to say “Her Majesty” is my favorite Decemberists album, but “Castaways and Cutouts,” “Hazards of Love” got me into the band first. I’m glad they’ve stuck around and continued making great songs, they were onto something way before it happened, and it has since become something else entirely. On the must-see list, I think.

“But I,” said the bachelor to the bride
“Am not waiting for tonight.
No, I will box your ears
And take your tears
And leave you, leave you here
Stripped bare.”

~The Bachelor and the Bride
The Decemberists, Her Majesty
