(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: Her majesty The Decemberists
Year released: 2003
Year reissued: 2008
Details: 180 gram, black vinyl
The skinny: Happy Monday all! It’s the last one of the month and it seems like as good a time as any to talk up the final Decemberists piece in my vinyl collection (for the time being). The indie folk stalwarts released their sophomore album, “Her majesty” back in 2003 and frontman Colin Meloy was truly at his literate and dramatic best. Just have a peek at the bonus short story included on the liner sleeve of this 2008 re-pressing by Kill Rock Stars. Yeah, you know that I still recommend these guys to anyone for an appreciation for the written word.
Standout track: “The soldiering life”
