The Crane Wife


The Decemberists: The Crane Wife
Art Direction: Carson Ellis, Colin Meloy, Mike King
Illustration and lettering: Carson Ellis
Layout: Mike King






The Decemberists played a show last night in Toronto’s Kool Haus to, what seemed to be, a full house. The tour is to promote their latest album, The Hazards of Love (album art also by Carson Ellis, who has done the art for virtually all of their releases).

The person who shot the video was unfortunately not in the ideal spot for recording audio and the awesome effects of vocalist, Shara Worden’s, impressive set of lungs gets a bit lost. They played The Hazards of Love in its entirety, plus a second set with tastes of Heart and The Smiths, and Colin forgetting lyrics on a few occasions.
