literal Rock with Electric Guitars

I've been spending some time loading up the iPod with some new music. The Decemberists latest The Crane Wife has been getting a lot of play lately. I will admit when I first heard it I was taken back a bit. Not that it's drastically different than there other releases but it is different. The beautiful instrumentation is still there but they've turned up the sonics a bit. Big loud guitars take position front and center on a handful of tracks but after a few spins it works nicely. It's a grower there's no arguing that but with after a few spins this album grabs you and rewards you hansomely. The Decemberists play Boston's Orpheum Theatre on Saturday November 4th.
