Decemberists

The Tain IMPORT CD

If we agree The Decemberists are one of the main features on the current music scene, mostly thanks to their last album, Her Majesty the Decemberists, and to the reediting in Kill Rock Stars of their debut album, Castaways and Cutouts, it comes as no surprise that one of their next releases is an Ep for Acuarela. This fascinating and creative Portland (Oregon)-based pop-art group that is reputed not only for its music, but also for the romantic and epic spirit in the best sense, has recently handed us its 18-minutes long release titled The Tain, whose cornerstone, according to leader Colin Meloy, is a cycle of Celtic mythology under the same name, and is basically a conceptual work, a song divided into five parts. Recorded with producer Chris Walla in Seattle, one of its fragments marks the first time that group drummer, Rachel, puts her voice and literary talent into a record.
