Decibully Is Coming - Show Up, America!

A couple of weeks ago I was prepping to go to Boston for the weekend and made a couple of mixes for the journey. Rock heavy mix for the middle of the trip to keep momentum going, old standards for the approach to home, and a mellow mix of newer stuff to kick off the voyage. I threw the opening track from Decibully’s Sing Out, America! “I’m Gonna Tell You” on the kick off mix based on trusted musical friends’ recommendations and when the track came on after I’d been jamming to the Head Set and the Fatales, I nearly drove off the road looking for the track listing to see what I had stumbled upon. The tune starts with lazy drums and a banjo and by the time William Seidel’s vocals kick in, you’ve been transported to a world where it’s always fall, trees are turning brilliant colors of orange and red and the air is always crisp. On the drive back I’d made a copy of the entire record and listened to it on repeat until I started to know all the words and realized that I’d found both a new perfect driving record and the potential soundtrack to my autumn.

The seven members of Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s Decibully have packed up their guitars, banjo, drums, harmonica, bass, Rhodes, lap steel and lord knows what else in a feat of van loading deserving world-wide praise and have started in on a tour heading out to the West Coast. Check out their MySpace page for tracks off of Sing Out, America! to hear the majesty of what they’re bringing across the country. They haven’t announced any East Coast dates for this jaunt yet, but fingers crossed. Following their last release, City of Festivals, the band played nearly a hundred shows. Seven nice Midwestern boys are bringing their alt-electronic-country rock to a city near you, so show up America. It might just make your autumn.
