Chamber pop, roots rock, neo-psych . . . needless to say, The Decemberists aren't merely one of indie's biggest stars; they also share styles with indie's greatest bands. Seemingly transmitted from a transistor radio straight out of the mid-'60s, the Shins' "Phantom Limb" is every rock critic's favorite adjective — jangly, shimmering, you name it — come to life. Bubbly yet brittle in the best Belle and Sebastian tradition, "I Want the World to Stop" buoys us just above a bittersweet undertow. And in "Librarian," My Morning Jacket's Jim James escorts us down to the boudoir of the bombshell bookworm, weaving a subtle study of obscured beauty. From Death Cab for Cutie to Fleet Foxes to Of Montreal, your favorite alt artists have a little Decemberist deep inside them . . . all year 'round.
