The Decemberists - Down By The Water

Yeah, we're back.

This is the newest track from the upcoming album by one of my favorite bands, The Decemberists. They're stepping away from the prog-rock epic that was Hazards Of Love and going back to their roots for a more folk-oriented sound. Peter Buck is on this album as well, which explains the REM style you may hear.

This song is a nice catchy tune about, well, rivers. Honestly it's nothing mind-blowingly spectacular, but it's a nice bit of folk rock, which Colin and crew are excellent at making, which is enough reason to get excited for the new album.

The King Is Dead comes out January 18th, 2011
