I’ve been into The Decemberists since posting Colin Meloy’s solo performance the other day, so I put together a collection of 11 live TV performances from 2005-2010 (highlights below) in mp4 (video) and mp3 format (the mp3 version includes a cover of Bjork’s “Human Behaviour” and “Crazy on You” by Heart). There’s also a brief but awesome 5-song set from Austin City Limits that I found on youtube (mp3 & mp4). This is all good to hold us over until their new album, The King is Dead, is released on January 18, 2011.

We Both Go Down Together (Conan O’Brien 2005)

The Crane Wife #3 (Austin City Limits 2007)

The Perfect Crime #2 (Austin City Limits 2007)

The Mariner’s Revenge Song (2007)

The Wanting Comes in Waves (Jools Holland 2009)

The Hazards of Love (Rock the Garden 2009)

The Rake’s Song (Rock the Garden 2009)

Crazy on You [Heart cover] (Rock the Garden 2009)
