More Mariners and Chimneysweeps, to Be Sure


Colin Meloy talks about the Decemberists' upcoming album, The Hazards of Love.

So excited! The Crane Wife, their last album, was amazing; the Decemberists just keep getting better and better.

Meloy describes Hazards as more narrative and a little darker than some of the singles they've released lately. He calls it a "folk opera." (Not in the Broadway fashion.) What other band would do that? Awesomeness.
