A little treat from the Decemberists! The Rake's Song

The Decemberist have posted a new song on their website, The Rake's Song; off their upcoming LP, The Hazards of Love. I find the song a pretty straight forward Decemberist song, more reflectant of The Crane Wife rather then any of their earlier work. Colin reportedly said that this coming album will be less of a production and more of a folky epitaph. I doubted at the time that he would be able to hold to this... and after this song I doubt it more. Download the song from HERE.

I am sure this is not the last little tickle or music will we will hear about from this album. I'd imagine they will release a couple more songs before it is out... if anything to keep the torrents and pirates at bay.
