The Decemberists release lyric video for 'The Wrong Year'

After four years without putting out new music, Oregon-bred The Decemberists are back: They just released a lyric video for new track “The Wrong Year” that looks like something straight out of Portlandia—birds included.

“The Wrong Year” is the third song released off their upcoming album, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World. Previously released tracks include “Lake Song” and “Make You Better,” a song with a music video featuring Parks and Recreation‘s Nick Offerman. READ FULL STORY

Nick Offerman gets a German accent in new Decemberists video

The Decemberists play for 'The Simpsons' -- Watch it here

What do a Portland folk rock band and Homer Simpson have in common? Nothing! And that’s the point.

The Decemberists, those NPR-approved bespectacled troubadours, made a brief appearance in last night’s episode of The Simpsons as Springfield Elementary’s new music teachers.

The episode revolved around a family from Portland — played, of course, by Portlandia‘s Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein — who move to Springfield and inspire a plaid-and-mustachioed makeover throughout the city.

So when Springfield Elementary briefly transforms into the “Springfield Charter Co-Op Experiment,” Colin Meloy and co. naturally turn up to impart their singular knowledge of “press gangs and infanticide.”
