A retro mix from a risk-taking indie rock band

This 8th album from The Decemberists has them taking risks and exploring musical genres combining their ageless folk feel with what feels like late a succession of 80s Glam, early 90s Alt-rock with even a brief stop in 70s southern rock. Seriously it’s all over the place but it worked for me. The gorgeous sad “Russalka, Russalka /The Wild Rushes” is probably the most recognizable of their traditional style, but other highlights for me included the opener and easy sing-along “Once in My Life”, “Cutting Stone”, “Starwatcher”, and “Sucker’s Prayer.”
