Below, you’ll hear a live cut of “Rise to Me”, a new song from The Decemberists which was performed during the band’s set at Bumbershoot this past weekend. (Quick plug: here’s our recap of the fest). What’s more, a YouTube search yields video of two other new songs, “Down by the Water” and “June Hymn”, and “Yellow Bonnet”. (Click on the songs’ corresponding links to check them out). And since The Decemberists have a new studio album due out next year, you can consider all of this a pretty in-depth preview of what’s to come.
