I bring to you yet another musically inclined indie folk rock band called The Decemberists. The Decemberist are from Portland, Oregon and they have five members: Singer and songwriter, Colin Meloy, Chris Funk on guitar, Jenny Conlee on Hammond organ, accordion, piano, keyboards and harmonica, Nate Query on bass guitar and string bass, and John Meon on drums, backing vocals, and melodica. Their music is usually written about historical events, but most their music can be interpreted differently depending on who’s listening. To me, every song tells a beautiful story or gets across an important message with much impact. Their song Down by the Water was even nominated for Best Rock Song at the 54th Grammy Awards.
