“The Rake’s Song” by The Decemberists (2009)

“The Decemberists have been a crescendo since their first album, a snowball of sound and fury. This song is the savage crab at their current high water mark. It is LOUD. Listen to it LOUDER. Verily, this is folk rock.”



A stunning animated video for The Rake’s Song by The Decemberists, The Rake’s Song has been made by St.Martins College Of Art students. It was created and directed in Moscow, by Alex Dashino and Varvara Volodina. Alex and Varvara are second year students studying Moving Image at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, London. “Any video referencing Baba Yaga, that lovable Russian folktale mainstay, is A+ in my book” Colin Meloy”
