My album of the week

So breezing around a landlocked country listening to sea-shanties that mix revenge, mobey dick intense obsession, jonah, pinocchio and for some reason the mental image of Jim Carrey dressed as Count Olaf dressed as a fisherman might seem weird, but The Decemberists' new album picaresque is bloody fantastic. It's just so rich in language, and the other songs have a heavy hint of meat is murder-era Smiths. Confused? I'm still finding new things and taking new delight each time I hear it.

Here's the sea shanty - it's a huge one!: The decemberists - the mariner's revenge song

Buy it
