Second Stage: Dewey Decibel

Download "Ice Farmer" by Dewey Decibel (Right-click or control-click to save to your computer)

Sometimes it's the smallest details in a piece of music that grab hold of me. The Dusting, a fantastic debut CD from the Nashville-based band Dewey Decibel, is an immediately catchy album, with jangly guitars, upbeat melodies and rhythms that skip around playfully. But I didn't fall in love with the sound until a minute into the second track, when everyone in this four-piece group shouts "Hey!" in unison, followed by some perfectly timed handclaps. It's a joyful release and, like the rest of the album, utterly infectious.

Here's that cut from The Dusting. It's called "Ice Farmer."
