Scarecrow (Fair Trade)
by Decyfer Down

FOR FANS OF: Disciple, Pillar
Rating: 4 Stars

Four full years have passed since Crash, the last fulllength from chart-topping rock and roller Decyfer Down. Expectations are high given how long the Grammynominated band has taken to follow up, but Scarecrow is well worth the wait. The new album shows several impressive sides of Decyfer, from the intense, concise single “Westboro” to the nuanced “Say Hello” that gives a nod to mid-‘90s grunge. It’s a diversified palette, and Decyfer Down has never sounded better.
