The Decemberists appeared on NPR’s ‘World Cafe’ on Friday (January 21) to perform songs from their new album ‘The King Is Dead’. “I grew up steeped in that music,” frontman Colin Meloy told the show’s host David Dye. “I think it was coming through ‘Hazards of Love’ and playing this music I wasn’t steeped in as a kid but rather came to later on. I bounced back and kind of wanted to rediscover the music that I listened to as a kid.” Watch the Portland indie rock band performing ‘Calamity Song’, ‘Down By the Water’, ‘Rise to Me’ and ‘This Is Why We Fight’ at NPR.org.
