The decemberists are a pretty cool band. Mostly aoustic stuff with brilliant lyrics, check them out. Spoon is another cool indie rock band they have been around a while. There guitar is kinda unique.

I dunno where you come from, but the Decemberists aren't mostly acoustic.

I love Spoon. My favorites are The Beast and Dragon Adored, Utilitarian, The Guest List/Execution, and The Agony of Lafitte.

what makes these two bands so similar that they get a combined thread? I cant stand the decemberists vocals for the life of me but spoons pretty funky

The Decemberists are a fantastic band, much better than Spoon in my opinion, but Spoon are still decent. Noticed The Decemberists are slowly getting more attention, I'm waiting for the day when I can sell my coloured vinyl.

two of my favourite bands, completely different, but for both very inspired song writing. the decmberists vocals i know can sound annoying at first but give it a chance and its pant-wettingly good all around.

haven't heard much of the decemberists' stuff but i love 'here i dreamt i was an architect' and 'july, july!', and i like '16 military wives'. although i've heard of spoon a million times i don't think i've ever actually listened to them even though i intended to. will do now that i've been reminded about it.

...into darkness
"july, july!" is an excellent song.
i think they sound great actually.
could do with more music a like.
not heard much by spoon though.

Happy to see this thread. Both bands are great, looking forward to Decemberists first Major-label release.

I was flicking through the channels looking for something to watch and found The Killers performing live, so I was like 'Sure, let's watch this.' So I watched what was left of it and then some band I had never heard of came on. It was Spoon.

So I watched that and they were really good in my opinion. Very unique sound. But I'm sad to say, I haven't heard anything by them other than what they played. Though I've been slowly looking into more about them.

I love the Decemberists... half of their songs sound like mid 60s Beatles, around the Magical Mystery Tour days... listen to 16 Military Wives and Billy Liar... the influence is obvious.

does anyone have the Mike Patton/Decemberists release?

hook me up if you do. i've heard its amazing and only 1000 copies are in print...
if i cut off your arms and legs
and wrap you in some fucked-up cocoon,
would you still look at me and say
"you can't catch what you can't see"
well i caught you honey,
like the clap sugar.
what do you think of that?

With Mike Patton!? Are you sure?
It's not one of Colin's solo cover releases again is it?
