Dexateens New Album, Free Music Download

The Dexateens formed in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, somewhere around 1998. And with today’s release of Singlewide, they look to move “out of the garage and onto the porch.”

Listening to Singlewide makes you feel like kicking up your boots, sipping a cold brew and hanging with three or four of your closest friends on the front porch, while the sun etches lines in your face and you taste the dust in the wind. And like any good southern band, The Dexateens make you want to hit the road.

It’s an honest, southern sound with all the right chords and guitar stylings to match. The vocals are a perfect down-home twang and song lyrics that you’d swear sounds no different than if two Tuscaloosa pals were simply shooting the breeze. Kind of like “My Daddy’s name is Elton, My Momma’s name is Jean, my car’s a Chevy Nova and my woman’s 17, she moved into my place ’cause her parents intervened.”

The Dexateens have received support from fellow Alabama native and Drive-By Truckers member Patterson Hood.

Can You Whoop It (hit play, or right click to save the free download) features David Berman of Silver Jews fame, in one his last recordings before officially retiring from the music scene.
