I’ll be your Girl

I’ll be your Girl

The Decemberists


I’ll be your Girl is MY first ‘New Music’ of 2018, in April! I think this says it all for me, New Music wise. Anyway, I’m very happy to report that this album by The Decemberists is very good indeed.  I really liked the album The King is Dead, back a few years ago now but I have tuned out of their music recently. I played ‘Don’t Carry It All’ for many a year and with the addition of a synthesiser, this is back to form for the Decemberists.  The opening track is certainly a good anthemic start and ‘Cutting Stone’ gets in your ear for a good time after you’ve heard it.  I’m listening to this album through a Moon 600i v2 and it sounds epic. The good sound continues with a bizarrely jaunty ‘All Die Young’ and concludes with the title track ‘I’ll be your Girl’. All in all a good album and finally something I really appreciated and enjoyed.
