New Audio: The Decemberists, “The Hazards of Love”

Posted in Audio, Music News with tags , , , , , , on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 by Erik Burg

From their forthcoming release on Capitol Records, slated to be releases March 24th, The Decemberists have begun streaming the title track to The Hazards of Love. It’s a little slower than some of their other material, and especially more than the other single “Rake’s Song”. The track runs fairly long too, and can become a bit boring. At nearly seven and a half minutes, “The Hazards of Love” is a promising track for the album. Like I said, it’s not overwhelming or mesmerizing at all, but it’s really solid and grounded in being good at what it’s good at. (Kind of reminds me of what I think about the new Andrew Bird album). Anyway, check it out for sure and enjoy!
