Stream: The Decemberists ‘The King Is Dead’

    The King Is Dead, the new album from prog-rock nerds the Decemberists, is streaming now at NPR. It’s very overblown! It’s got a lot of lyrics! It’s basically exactly what you’d expect, minus the songs about raping forest creatures (like on Hazards of Love). The album is out on Jan. 18 via Capitol. Listen over here.
