Nice clip to promote next's The Decemberists album, The King is dead. This song, Down by the water, features the lovely voice of Gillian Welch. The tour starts January 24th, and these are the fortunate cities.
There's always a great illustrator behind a great band, well, not always but there's is one in this case. Carson Ellis is the official-band-illustrator behind The Decemberists artworks. It's difficult to have a distinctive work these days, she does.
