Can we talk about the Decemberists and the artistry in The Hazards of Love
Can we talk about the Decembrists and art
CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE DECEMBERISTS

We can literally always talk about the Decemberists.

Culling of the Fold is a fucking terrifying song

A Cautionary Song is a fucking terrifying song

Shankill Butchers is a fucking terrifying song

what the hell is wrong with the Decemberists

You must be new here.

The Calamity Song - The Decembrists

I’ve been humming this song roughly since 2011…I just discovered the music video and cannot express how much I love it

This is a song all about wanting to give oral sex. It reminds me of my wonderful but a bit overly enthusiastic ex who constantly wanted to give me oral despite not being very good at it, purely because he enjoyed it.

Like, just look at these lyrics. They’re wonderful.

Long summer days can be too lazy, vices,
boys dull and idle and left to their own devices
Open up your linnen lap and let me go down, down, down

All that I wanted in the world
Was just to live to see a naked girl
But I found I quickly bored
I wanted more
I wanted more
