vier jahre haben sie sich zeit gelassen für den nachfolger von the king is dead . the decemberists, colin meloy, chris funk (gitarre), jenny conlee (keyboard), nate query (bass) und john moen (schlagzeug), entschlossen sich nach erfolgreichem tourende 2011, eine bandpause einzulegen und sich persönlichen dingen zu widmen. sie hatten mit the king is dead immerhin gerade ein album veröffentlicht, das in den us charts sofort auf platz 1 schoss und ihr song down by the water wurde für den grammy in der kategorie best rock song nominiert. aber ganz von der bildfläche verschwanden sie dann doch nicht. ihre animierten alter egos traten bei den simpsons auf, für den soundtrack von hunger games lieferten sie den song our engine , meloy veröffentlichte die prämierte kinderbuchserie wildwood und das livealbum we all raise our voices to the air , das ihre atemberaubende intensität auf der bühne widergibt, erinnerte uns immer wieder an die wunderbare band aus portland.

comprised of eight tracks, periscope blues is the culmination of a mission gone wrong. music for the stranded, the lost, those backed into a corner with nowhere to go, or maybe a reflection of sad individuals panicking on a tropical vacation gone awry. somber yet very tense drifting off radar machine electronics that feel like a blistering sun beating down on decaying beach remains as time crawls on. that or the equivalent to working the grill summers at jones beach and stealing from the register just to get a little more…

braids, the canadian experimental pop group who released *native speaker* in 2011, have reinvented themselves in the making of their second full length. after 18 months of touring in support of their debut, along with the departure of a band member, the group secluded themselves in their montreal studio for a year of writing and recording. while *native speaker* was written in an organic and live environment, the group sought to explore a more introspective and electronic approach to songwriting. sonically, the songs from these sessions are delicate and tight, yet thoughtfully open up to the rich lushness reminiscent of their older material. lyrically, they are honest and vulnerable, demonstrating the groups emotional growth and maturity since their last record.
