The dBs Are Back

On June 26 legendary indie rock quartet the dBs will release their first new album in 25 years, and first album with the original lineup (including both songwriters Chris Stamey and Peter Holsapple) in 30 years. I've heard it, and far from a pointless exercise in 80s nostalgia, Falling Off The Sky sounds just as fresh and relevant in 2012 as Repercussion did in 1982. And that's saying something.

I'll have more to say about the dBs and their new album in the coming weeks. In the meantime, I highly recommend checking out this interview with the band on WUNC, North Carolina Public Radio.
