the Decemberists, and I like the song "Severed". I just don't know if the two things go togethers.
I have zero issue with a band stretching its wings, I just didn't think it would be into snyth / electronic music. It's a little out of my comfort zone for them, but I suppose that is their point.
"Severed" sounds more like an OK Go song meets the Decemberists.
There is are lines in the chorus of the new song that just hearkens back to the bands "Make You Better", so maybe they're trying to bridge the two sounds, or maybe Colin Meloy just can't help himself.
I'm willing to take a listen to their new disk when it comes out, but so far, I'm not sure quite what to think.
