Album Review

This Louisville, KY, band has inspired comparisons to Weezer and Ben Folds, but if you're over 30 you may find yourself thinking that they sound more like Tom Petty sitting in with Jump, Little Children. Risen from the ashes of local faves 100 Acre Wood, Digby made some radical changes to its previously acoustic-based sound and emerged as a gritty power pop band, balancing the rootsy sounds of Hammond organ and tastefully distorted guitar with a dab of strings here and the occasional hint of a drum loop there. The group is at its most irresistible on medium-tempo rockers like "Minerva," "One Hundred Percent Free," and the simple but gorgeous "Falling Up to the Stars," but when they drop the temperature to a slow simmer they can be very effective as well, as they do on "Keep Your Distance." Every so often the flame goes out, though, and "So Low" meanders aimlessly before picking up a small amount of steam and then fizzling to a close. But the spectacular one-two punch of "Some Can Hear" and "'Til the Morning" makes up nicely for that lapse and ends the album powerfully. Then comes the coda, a hidden track called "Cigarettes and Magazines" by the band's labelmate, the Muckrakers. It's a strange moment, but a good song. Highly recommended.

Customer Reviews


O.K. So my band has shared the stage with these on numerous occations. EVERYTIME we see them live it is amazing. They are such great musicians and even greater friends. This particular album happens to be one of the BEST albums I have ever heard and I'm judgemental, a*****e of a musician!!!

What a way to start your day...

Many people haven't learned about the Louisville Sound yet, but this band exemplifies the best of it. Blending traditional rock elements with pop, along with a nice Southern sensibility, Digby really takes it to the next level with Falling Up. They really know how to start your day with what is probably their band anthem "One Hundred Percent Free" (Which they're probably also sick of playing, but hey - It's one hell of a good tune). Definitely worth the dime, definitely worth the time. Keep your eye on this band.

love it

this is my new favorite band... found them on pandora when i was listening to matt woods. good stuff.
