album available on Amazon and iTunes….

my review:

The debut album from The Decks, “Becoming Nightblind” could easily be
a soundtrack to your life. a welcome cool breeze on a hot Summer’s
night…the quiet whiteness of freshly fallen snow in the dead of
Winter…a conversation that goes well into the night until sunrise…
As the album flows, its sonic twisting and turning creates a cinematic
feel as you make your way through. Multiple listens are required and
in various settings….in the car, at home, on the laptop, and you
will want to grab the headphones to hear the lushness, intricacies and
instrumentation of the recording. It’s hard to imagine that only two
people created all this sound. The album explores different sounds and
styles, displaying the band’s many influences. More importantly, it
reveals their love of sound. Instrumentals are mixed in seemingly as
interludes of individual musical acts or scenes. “What It Is, Really”
gives a nod to the indie rockers who like to dance, with it’s hopeful
slightly upbeat tempo. It’s hard not to tap your toes and move to the
music! “Rusted Hinges” is the cool breeze taking over you, while
“Wicked Summer” begs desperately for an escape from oppressive heat
and humidity. Other highlights include, “Myrmidon Blues” (love the
banjo!!) and “Whiteout” The album plays best from beginning to end,
but the songs hold up well on their own like individual colors of a
wide spectrum palette waiting to burst onto the canvas of your choice.
