The Delines are a new project led by songwriter and novelist Willy Vlautin and Amy Boone of the Damnations TX, and including members of Richmond Fontaine, the Decemberists and the Minus 5.

Editor's Note: In this series, the KDHX Music Department spotlights a new release that's hot on the 88.1 charts.

The Decemberists’ latest release, The King Is Dead, puts a unique spin on a familiar genre while continuing to please the band's fans. To my ears, the Decemberists were out to prove only one thing with this release: a back-to-basics approach is all that is needed to create music worth hearing.
