Vinyl love: The Decemberists “I’ll be your girl”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: The Decemberists
Album Title: I’ll be your girl
Year released: 2018
Details: Gatefold sleeve, Orange vinyl, Limited edition, Autographed

The skinny: Personally, I think all those people that are listening to The Decemberists’ eighth album and saying that the band completely changed their sound, haven’t really been listening closely to the Portland-based quintet all along. Sure, there are synths and some other experimentation in their use of instruments and song structure but I’ve always though this band has always done a great job of pushing themselves forward. Also, Colin Meloy’s awesome, literate lyrics and one-of-a kind vocals are still here so longtime fans should still be pleased.

Standout track: “Severed”
