new deal with Razor & Tie can only mean one thing: a new album. Based on what's available so far, granted it's only a single track, it doesn't sound like Devine will be using a razor, or putting on a tie any time soon. This one will be called Between the Concrete and the Clouds
(September 13) and it's sounding as scraggly as the red-bearded singer song writer himself.
Devine's sound has always been consistent, falling somewhere between punk and folk with his often pressing lyrics, heart torn tracks, and simple melodies. In the past his albums have been pretty solid, and almost always, there's that one song ("Another Bag of Bones", "Ballgame", etc.) that never gets old. While "Between the Concrete and the Clouds" maintains all the integrity of a Kevin Devine song, both in theme and sound, it's most likely not the golden track for Between the Concrete and the Clouds
. Nevertheless, the song gets better with each listen, and if we can expect another album full of songs just like it, then prepare for a pretty good album; not to mention, this one comes with a pretty sweet price point. Click on the link at the bottom of this page to download it for free.
