Lab Overview

Debut album from Portland's The Decemberists. Castaways And Cutouts was released in 2001 with fuzzed out guitar tracks informed by folk and Americana, with a noticeable Neutral Milk Hotel influence. Granted these recordings are a little cleaner than Mangum & co's, but that does not take away from the music at all. The lively anthem of "July, July!" sets the pace on the heels of the two subdued opening tracks. It's followed by the accordion driven "A Cautionary Song" which gives way to the album's high point, "Odalisque." The songs peaks and valleys are moved along by Jenny Conlee's driving organ. From there the album gently winds down as the band moves effortlessly through songs like "The Legionnaire's Lament" and "Clemintine." It's all wrapped up in the stunning one two punch of album closer "California One / Youth And Beauty Brigade." Once it's over The Decemberists leave you wanting more.
