A week ago I wrote about a show I went to at South Paw in Brooklyn. There, Kevin Devine played an acoustic set. He played songs from hew new C.D. (due to hit stores in May) as well as some older songs. At times it was just him, at times Margaret White joined him, and for a few songs, a woman (whose name escapes me) sang back-up. I absolutely love his music. He’s even better live. And quite honestly, I’m curious to hear what others will have to say.
Today, I want to share a few of his songs with you. As mentioned earlier, the C.D. I’m pulling them from isn’t out until May, so you can all feel special that you’re hearing it before everyone else. And though this first one isn’t my absolute favorite (maybe second) off of the new C.D. it has single written all over it.
Without further ado, I give you a taste of Kevin (Mac users: “Control click/Download Linked File As” to download. PC users, I can’t help you. But maybe someone else can.)
And for those of you who want something political here is another one. And that one is probably my favorite. But maybe that’s because of the live performance.
I really hope I don’t get arrested for this. And let’s hope my bandwidth can handle it as well.
(P.S. I will be removing these end of the day tomorrow.)
