For over 20 years, The Decemberists have been one of the most original, daring, and thrilling American rock bands. Founded in the year 2000, The Decemberists’ distinctive brand of hyper-literate folk-rock set them apart from the start with the release of their debut EP 5 Songs in 2001. Since then, the band has released nine full-length albums that are unbound by genre and highly ambitious, ranging from Americana-leaning storytelling epics to elements of 70's prog and hard rock.
Now the enduring indie band is back with their first new music in six years, "Burial Ground." Already a fan-favorite after being debuted live last year, their latest single takes the overt fatalism of 2018's "I'll Be Your Girl" and infuses it with the jangle-pop of The Dentists and dreamy harmonies of The Beach Boys (performed with an assist from The Shins' James Mercer). "'Burial Ground' is in that time-honored pop song tradition, a paean to hanging out in graveyards," says songwriter Colin Meloy. "The melody hook came to me in a dream and I hummed it into my phone on waking. Most dream-songs are bad; this was the exception.” The Decemberists will bring more new music with them on tour this year summer.
The Head And The Heart, an acclaimed indie folk band whose influences include Americana, country-rock, and classic Beatlesque pop, was formed in Seattle by a group of Northwestern transplants. They broke into the mainstream in 2013 with the release of their sophomore outing, "Let's Be Still", which peaked at the number ten slot on the Billboard 200 and shot straight to the top of the U.S. Folk and Independent Albums charts. Subsequent efforts "Signs of Light" and "Living Mirage" reached the upper echelons of the U.S. and Canadian charts. In 2022, the band issued their fifth LP, "Every Shade of Blue", which included the hit single of the same name.
The past couple of years have been busy for The Head And The Heart. After releasing "Every Shade of Blue," the band commenced to headline sold-out shows all over North America on their Every Shade of Blue North American Tour, and performed multiple times on national television, everywhere from "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" to performing at the championship banner drop for "The Seattle Sounders".
