The Decemberists Release New EP, “Traveling On”
Just a few months after their latest studio album, The Decemberists have just released a new EP called Traveling On. The Portland-based indie rock band, which features bassist Nate Query, culled the five tracks from the sessions that produced I’ll Be Your Girl.
“This little bugger is a sharp twenty-one minutes of songs that were recorded during the ‘I’ll Be Your Girl’ sessions but never quite found a home on the album those sessions produced,” the band explains.
Traveling On covers a lot of territory in those twenty minutes, from the New Wave-ish “Down on the Knuckle” to the Beatles-esque “Midlist Author” to the folkier title track. Of course, Query finds the perfect tone and accompaniment for each song. Check out the latter song here:
