Stream New Kevin Devine Song "Bloodhound"

Posted by: Drew Beringer (09/23/13)
You can stream a brand new Kevin Devine song titled "Bloodhound" as well as read a recent interview on PureVolume. It's off of Bubblegum, which hits stores on October 15th.
I kind of thought the crowd-funding thing was interesting but I had a whole mess of fear based somewhat ethical concerns. Most of which I addressed pretty explicitly in the essay that accompanies the Kickstarter campaign but I ultimately decided to do it because I wanted to do something different and see if either A, I was super misguided in thinking I had the kind of connection with the audience that I thought I had or B, I was correct in assuming that they're not concerned where the records come out label-wise as long as I keep making them and playing shows and thankfully the latter was what ended up happening.

It'd be cool if he put out something from Bulldozer as well, but I'm content to keep hearing these amazing tracks.

My favorite songwriter of this generation, not sure anyone else even comes close, and that doesn't even take into account how awesome of a performer he is. Not too many artists do 2 albums front-to-back in one night (which was awesome) and even fewer do 3 albums front-to-back (insane).

Can't wait to hear more.

Write Your Story Now was one of the best nights of my life.

I feel like I've kind of missed the boat with Kevin Devine, but this is decent and I liked Bad Books II a lot. Where do I start in his discography?

This one is classic Kevin, probably his most recognizable song:


And then I'd listen to Put Your Ghost To Rest first.

Or if you want a career-spanning list of choice tracks to get you into the sound before you dive into deeper cuts:
"Cotton Crush"
"Ballgame"
"Another Bag of Bones"
"No Time Flat"
"No One Else's Problem"
"Off-Screen"
"Just Stay"
"Noose Dressed Like A Necklace"
"Longer That I'm Out Here"
"Brother's Blood"

^ Throw those together in a Spotify playlist or something, and you'll have a good idea of whether he's the guy for you.

Just a heads up: The Brother's Blood album isn't on Spotify or Rdio for some reason (though Another Bag of Bones/Love Me I'm A Liberal are), so I'd suggest just looking it up on YouTube. Personally my favorite album of his.

All you need is this:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B008HI682G/absolutepunk-20/

It's $8 and basically a "greatest hits" session. This is Kevin Devine's best record and also the best album released in 2012.
