2020 reissue of the impressive 2003 effort by the Portland, Oregon quintet the Decemberists. As its title would suggest, Castaways and Cutouts is a record populated with an eclectic array of unlikely characters in various states of abandonment and revelry. While the likes of Spanish gypsies, infant specters, and Turkish prostitutes are not common elements to be found within modern pop music, these figures find ample footing within the songcraft of Colin Meloy, supported comfortably by the band's lush and orchestral instrumentation. Recorded throughout a two-month period in a warehouse in Portland, Oregon's industrial southeast, the record swims gracefully between heart-rending, deftly arranged pop and scrappy off-the-cuff dirge.
