Decibully
Sing Out America! (Polyvinyl Records)

By: Mike SOS

Decibully is an interesting name for a band you'd expect to be a loud, obnoxious metal clan but isn't. Instead, the outfit, which hails from Wisconsin and goes seven deep, is a jangly juggernaut, intertwining the art of capturing captivating sound alongside the craftsmanship of good songwriting. Sing Out America! succeeds at both, hooking you to its memorable choruses, deliciously placed banjos, and sweeping Rhodes pianos, while creating moody, atmospheric layers on songs like "Let's Eat Our Mistakes" that you'd expect haughty Brit rockers to roll out. Brandishing a two-step twang usually found on alt-country acts like Wilco or old Neil Young while exhibiting the devil-may-care attitude of bands like Talking Heads and The Police, Decibully's nine-track escape from the everyday is a welcome indication that there is important pop rock music somewhere out there.
