B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 19 MAY 2012

The boys from Hoboken, NJ are back! The dB's the eccentric and terrific pop group based in Hoboken have reunited. It's the first time that the two principal songwriters of the band, Chris Stamey and Peter Holsapple, are together on a recording (as The dB's) since 1982. Their new offering, Falling Off the Sky, on Bar/None, is top-shelf pop, featuring all original members, including bassist Gene Holder and drummer Will Rigby. It feels as if both Stamey and Holsapple have brought to the table some of their finest songs in ages. Will be released on June 12th.
