Decemberists, The


The fall of 2003 finds our heady heroes, the Decemberists, in fine health and stature. Having bided their time patiently as the fine Olympians at the pre-eminent indie imprint Kill Rock Stars reissued their debut opus, Castaways and Cutouts, to a nearly universal show of critical enthusiasm, this adorable Portland quintet has yet more manna to offer the discriminating music listener. Namely, a smart little LP entitled, Her Majesty the Decemberists.
