Album artwork for The Crane Wife by The Decemberists

the album 'the crane wife' is thematically based on a tragic japanese folk tale, but with an added dose of rock'n'roll, rape, murder and violence as well. the album was recorded with death cab for cutie's chris walla and the band have decided to toughen up a bit by discarding the brass section, throwing 70s style organ solos into the mix, cranking up the amps and moving the drums up front. this isnt to say that the decemberists have become unrecognizable in the slightest: all of the bands hallmarks are intact. 'the crane wife' continues the decemberists tradition of consistently engaging albums offering plenty for fans new and old.
