Colin Meloy Sings Live
(Kill Rock Stars)

Sings Live! is exactly what you would expect from Decemberists frontman Colin Meloy. A live record full of heart, Shakespearean-wit, and stripped-down versions of his life’s work. It is amazing listening to him take the audience through an intimate roller-coaster (or, using his words, a “campfire-sing along”). His songs journey through a reflective and somber “Devil’s Elbow” (from his days with Tarkio) to a hard-strumming and passionate “We Both Go Down Together” from the Picaresque LP. A blending of “Here I Dreamt I Was An Architect” with Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” adds some unpredictability. He also unveils the “worst song he’s ever written” in “Dracula’s Daughter” which IS bad but is also pretty funny at the same time. Sings Live! is a wonderful look into how strong of a singer Meloy really is and his playful interaction with the crowd is also quite refreshing as well. Not essential but fans of The Decemberists and folk in general may want to snatch this one up as I did!
