decker. has created an expansive palette of folk, gospel, rock and psychedelia and will release their new album Patsy on February 17, 2015. Front-man Brandon Decker sings with a soulful conviction that is almost unidentifiable but brilliantly curious. Patsy is bookended (save for a quick intro) by “O.D.B.” and “Ol Dirty Revival,” two themed tracks that lean gospel revival over psychedelic guitar folk.
Patsy was recorded at WaveLab Recording Studio (Neko Case, Iron & Wine, DeVotchKa) in Tucson, Patsy veers from quiet shuffles to noisy guitar jams and horn-driven ballads, but never becomes quixotic or difficult.
decker. will be on the road tour extensively in the new year and the first run of dates are confirmed and can be found below, with many more to be added.
