Devin @ Hotel Vegan - SXSW 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
Devin

Celebrating his new LP, Romancing, out tomorrow (4/10) via Frenchkiss (which is streaming in full at Spinner), Brooklyn retro rocker Devin is headlining Mercury Lounge tonight (4/9) with opener, Young Rival. Tickets are still available. I don't know why (he would do that), but he'll also being playing a sold out Neon Trees show, with APT, at Bowery Ballroom on 4/16.

Devin, who recently toured with Heartless Bastards, and played SXSW including a noon set at Hotel Vegan, will also tour Europe in May.

Check out his video for "Masochist" and a video of Devin performing live at the SXSW Spotify House with the new album's tracklist and all tour dates, below...

He looks just like Cameron from Ferris Bueller's Day Off in that picture.

This is pretty awful.

1:28, beter than no press at all. Does sound like something for British consumption, but it's not bad at all. Made it thru the stream a couple of times without being bored.

^ Yeah, but he's probably on the receiving end.

FrenchKiss please stop putting out records. You are single-handedly responsible for shit like this getting out there under some "cool" guise and people paying attention to it (instead of it remaining lost in the basement where it should be). You are the Victory Records of Indie Rock.

Devin from DIVE = the only Devin

The video song is OK but the SXSW "Spotify house" (barf!) song is SO irritating.

if you google this album, page one pulls up "buzz" from influential tastemaker sites like totallyfuzzy.blogspot.com and sourmashup.blogspot.com. #PRdisaster

Here is some gothic for you. I don't know if I should give them some credit but honestly, I don't like their kind of music. I don't even call theirs music.
