Long Live The King (EP)

Long Live The King by The Decemberists
Released: Oct 2011
Label: Capitol Records
Long Live the King features tracks recorded during the same sessions as 2011's The King is Dead. And though it's ostensibly a jumble of extra songs, it still manages quite a seamless flow that's mostly folk in nature, with a few touches of sleepy horns in "Sonnet" and slide guitar in "Foregone" and the Grateful Dead cover "Row Jimmy"; there are even two tracks about laying a man in his grave. One of them, "Burying Davy," is the absolute highlight here -- a ghostly acoustic number that slowly gathers into a psychedelic dust storm of electric guitars, all grounded by Colin Meloy's deadpan howl.
