IN THE WORLD OF INDIE ROCK, The Decemberists are second only to Arcade Fire when it comes to carving out a successful and criti- cally acclaimed career. Like Arcade Fire at this year’s Grammys, the idea of The Decemberists picking up a golden statue in 2012 is not far off. The poppy, folky rock melodies paired with Colin Meloy’s quirky vocals has made the band stand out since its first full-length album, Castaways and Cutouts, in 2002. More recently, however, The Decemberists have been noticed for its experimentation with the indie rock genre – most notably in 2009 when the band released Hazards of Love, a rock opera. The band brought in guest vocalists Becky Stark of Lavender Diamond, Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond and Jim James of My Morning Jacket. Stark’s role was not only to provide guest vocals, but as a character, Margaret, in the opera. She also accompanied the band on many of its 2009 performances. In 2011, the band took a different direction with The King Is Dead, released in January. Opposed to the big, orchestral sounds on Hazards of Love, The Decemberists took the opportunity to reconnect with American music and traditions on this folksy album, showing artist evolution done right. Now where’s that Grammy? Reported by Lindsay Patton-Carson
