The Decembrists bring back REM

Remember REM, back in their So. Central Rain days, when the band was great? (Even Cobain said so, a little enviously, when he got frustrated with his own sound on In Utero.)

Well, so do the Decembrists, sounds like, from their soon-to-be-released The King is Dead, which you can listen to in its entirety for a week or so, thanks to NPR, right here

Apparently Peter Buck (of REM) had a hand in the recording, so maybe we shouldn't be surprised. 

Here's the band, with front-man Colin Meloy holding flowers, and the marvelous singer Gillian Welch, who joined the Decembrists for this effort.
