Album Notes:

Picaresque is the third studio album from The Decemberists. It was released in 2005 on the Kill Rock Stars record label.

 

The word “picaresque” is taken from a form of satirical prose originating in Spain, depicting realistically and often humorously the adventures of a low-born, roguish hero living by his or her wits in a corrupt society.

 

Picaresque reached number 5 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, and number 128 on the Billboard 200. Pitchfork Media placed Picaresque at number 143 on their list of top 200 albums of the 2000s.

 

The album was recorded at the Prescott Church in northeast Portland, which the band rented for one month in the summer of 2004. To facilitate the creative process and avoid creative block, band members filled a used a bike helmet with slips paper listing strategies and ideas to try out. Non-traditional rock instruments used in the album’s recording included an accordion and a hurdy-gurdy. The album was produced by Chris Walla, also the guitarist for the band Death Cab for Cutie.

 

The Decemberists are an indie folk rock band from Portland, Oregon, United States, fronted by singer/songwriter Colin Meloy. The other members of the band are Chris Funk (guitar, multi-instrumentalist), Jenny Conlee (Hammond organ, accordion, melodica, piano, keyboards, harmonica), Nate Query (bass guitar, string bass), and John Moen (drums, backing vocals, melodica, guitar).

 

The band’s debut EP, 5 Songs, was self-released in 2001. Their sixth full-length album, The King Is Dead, was released on 14 January 2011, by Capitol Records. It was the band’s third record with the label.

 

In addition to their lyrics, which often focus on historical incidents and/or folklore, The Decemberists are also well known for their eclectic live shows. Audience participation is often a part of each performance, typically during encores. The band stages whimsical reenactments of sea battles and other centuries-old events, typically of regional interest, or acts out songs with members of the crowd. During their European tour in the winter of 2010, the band performed “The Mariner’s Revenge Song” at the conclusion of each date. The audience was encouraged to scream as if they were being consumed by a whale mentioned in the track’s narrative while the band pretended to die on stage. In 2011, the track “Down by the Water” from the album The King is Dead was nominated for Best Rock Song at the 54th Grammy Awards.
