For the past 11 years, the Dexateens have been amassing fans and wowing critics with their unique blend of Southern arena Rock, homespun Folk lyricism, Gospel harmonies and contemporary Garage Rock sensibilities. The Tuscaloosa, Ala., quintet has been produced by Punk avatar Tim Kerr and Southern Rock icon-in-waiting Patterson Hood, and have earned wildly favorable comparisons to The Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Crazy Horse along the way.

For their latest album, the just-released Singlewide, the Dexateens — with guidance from Nashville producer Mark Nevers (whose talents have been utilized by Lambchop, Bobby Bare Jr. and Charlie Louvin) — take a step back from their raucous electric output and interpret their new batch of songs from a rootsier and more (but certainly not exclusively) acoustic perspective, dialing back the volume and boiling their sound down to its most essential and appealing elements.

They'll be at the Southgate House with The Features and Those Darlins. Get Sound Advice here.
