The Decemberists

Portland, Oregon’s The Decemberists are one of the best American bands extant.

Our last posting featured their take on a new song from the musical Hamilton.

Now the band has just announced a new album, I’ll be Your Girl, with the song Severed.

(P.S. shades of the band 999, if you get my reference.)


The Dandy Warhols

The Dandy Warhols 8th album is entitled This Machine.

We last heard from them in 2010 with their greatest hits album, The Capitol Years 1995-2007.

(BTW, if you haven’t seen the 2004 documentary Dig!, I highly recommend it. It chronicles the fascinating love/hate relationship between The Dandy Warhols and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.)

Beat the World is the band’s own label and they record in their home studio called the Odditorium in Portland, Oregon.

“Sad Vacation” is the first single.

Blitzen Trapper

American Goldwing is the name of the forthcoming Blitzen Trapper album.

There is more of a country feel on this, their sixth album, as compared to last year’s Destroyer of the Void as heard here and here.

Mid-September is the slated release date by the Portland, Oregon quintet.

In the meantime, Sub Pop has a free download of the title track.
