Picaresque Vinyl 2xLP (+ extra 4th side)

$ 20.00

The Decemberists know that the psychology of a culture at war is complex; that historical archetypes can inform the masses on current events far better than the evening news; and, perhaps most importantly, that life is ultimately a spectacular and colorful pageant. They remind us that, on any given day, we might rub shoulders with rogue spies and runaway prostitutes, child monarchs and vengeful mariners, boy ghosts, couples contemplating suicide, cannibals and drowning angels. This existence is indeed a spectacle to be revered. In August of 2004, Rachel Blumberg, Jenny Conlee, Chris Funk, Colin Meloy, and Nate Query set up shop at a former Baptist church in Portland, Oregon. With co-producer Chris Walla at the controls, the five musicians collectively known as The Decemberists emerged three weeks later with the bulk of the work completed for Picaresque (Kill Rock Stars - March 22, 2005), their most ambitious and realized effort to date.

The Vinlyl 2xLP features genuine gatefold LP packaging, just like it was the 60's, with a 24 page, full color booklet glued to the inside of the jacket. The booklet contains all new photographs from the Picaresque photo shoot. The LP also includes Picaresqueties, 5 songs recorded during the Picaresque sessions not to be found on any other Decemberists release
