i don't know much about the decemberists, to be honest. what genre are they? i've heard they're worth listening to.
i'd personally classify them as contemporary folk, but i've seen people call them anti-folk and, in some of their newer works, semi-rock.
that's really interesting, actually. i rarely venture out of my interest in rock and rock subgenres, but i might give the decemberists a listen. they sound like theyd fit me. recommend any albums or songs for a starter?
