Song of the Week: ‘June Hymn” by The Decemberists

If you haven’t picked up The Decemberists’ new album, The King is Dead, and you like their other tunes, you probably should give it a listen. It is, in some ways, a much more polished set of tunes than what I’ve tasted in Her Majesty, Picaresque, The Crane Wife and others. Tonally, it’s simply sharper, smoother, tied together better. While that’s not always a good thing, it certainly is in this case. Another fantastic album from a great group!
