Decemberists — Picaresque (2-LP)


Double LP Pressing

The Decemberists know that the psychology of a culture at war is complex; that historical archetypes can inform the masses on current events far better than the evening news; and, perhaps most importantly, that life is ultimately a spectacular and colorful pageant. They remind us that, on any given day, we might rub shoulders with rogue spies and runaway prostitutes, child monarchs and vengeful mariners, boy ghosts, couples contemplating suicide, cannibals and drowning angels. Recorded mostly in a former Baptist church in Portland, Oregon, Picaresque is their most ambitious and realized effort to date.
