Colin Meloy and his merry band of seafaring warblers (known by most as The Decemberists) embody a pretty specific aesthetic, no matter what kind of theatrics they are peddling (from sea shanty to "Metal" rock opera). So it shouldn't come as much of a shock that their new tunes, despite being a reported departure from British folk to American roots, sound suspiciously like everything else they've ever made. But we like what they make, so, good! Let's listen.

Stream The King Is Dead over at NPR. The album hits shelves 1/18. -joe puglisi
