Spotlight on My Favorite Musicians: Kevin Devine Edition
With a new album coming out this month, I've been meaning to make a post about Kevin Devine & the Goddamn Band. If you like Elliott Smith, Brand New, Bright Eyes, etc then you should give him a listen. Honestly, though, he has so many diverse songs that he's kind of difficult to classify. Just a really great independent singer/songwriter from Brooklyn with a penchant for incredibly clever lyrics.
I really think he's one of the best people making music right now, and he's definitely the "best artist you've never heard" - despite being active since 2002 or so as a solo artist and being on the verge of releasing his 5th album, there are tons of people who have never heard him. Well, I'm here to fix that!
Here's one of my favorite songs off the new album:
Here are the lyrics, which I'm quite fond of:
Also, spinner.com has him as a featured artist today and is offering the title track of the new album as a free download. This song is incredible, I encourage everyone to download it:
You can hear more songs on his Myspace page. If you like what you hear, you can preorder the new CD on the record label's site. Hope some of you enjoy it, there are few things I like more than exposing people to good music.
