Decemberists Have The Number One Album In The Country

After two weeks of the lowest selling albums of the Soundscan era, the record business found an unlikely savior: The Decemberists, whose The King Is Dead, sold 93,567 copies, or about twice as many as mainstream rock band Cake did last week. This is a huge win for The Decemberists (and Capitol for signing them a few years ago), and especially surprising since Hazards of Love only sold 19,000 in its first week. Apparently people are willing to shell out for alt-country-ish Decemberists more than they are for terrible rock opera Decemberists. Noted! 


Elsewhere on the charts, Kidz Bop 19 hit number two. So they can't all be winners, I guess.
