The Decemberists stretch acoustic folk into epic prog rock song cycles and twist old-timey cadences around, well, equally old-timey verbiage. Over a half-dozen albums and many more EPs, the Portland ensemble have established a sound deeply rooted in traditional forms but uniquely their own, thanks largely to bandleader Colin Meloy's wordy, wavering singing. We Raise Our Voices to the Air is the Decemberists' first live album, recorded over the course of twelve concerts in support of 2011's alt-country-inflected The King is Dead, and while it mainly concentrates on that record, it also draws on the band's back catalog for favorites such as "Billy Liar," "O Valencia!," and "The Crane Wife" trilogy. With 20 tracks clocking at nearly an hour and a half, it's a generous set for any Decemberists fan—and a reminder of the band's considerable live chops.
