Falling Off the Sky

From New York, North Carolina, and all over the world

There's a new dB's album out called Falling Off the Sky.

It's their first album in 25 years, their first with the original lineup in 30 years.

They've been recording it (slowly) since 2005.

And when I heard about it, I hoped.

But I didn't let myself hope too much. I didn't want to be disappointed.

After all, how many reunion albums by once-vibrant bands arrive with a noisy clunk. You listen once or twice, then wish they'd never gotten back together.

That's what I was afraid of.

The new dBs album has no reason to be good.

No reason to be as good as their classic records from long, long ago.



It is.

They sound just as good as they ever did. But somehow also have the wisdom of their experiences over the past 30 years.

So, courtesy of Bar/None and the dBs, enjoy these tasty tracks from Chris Stamey, Peter Holsapple, Will Rigby, and Gene Holder (with some help from producer/guitarist Mitch Easter):
