Kevin Devine releasing Kenny O’Brien and the O’Douls EP, shares new song
Kevin Devine is once again doing St. Patrick's Day shows under his Kenny O’Brien and The O’Douls alter-ego, and today he also released a new song by that alter-ego, "Pat McLaughlin’s Work Song." Like last year's "Margaret Reed O’Shaughnessy," it finds Kevin putting his usual indie/emo twist on the traditional Irish folk music form, and it's very fun stuff. It'll appear alongside last year's Pogues cover and "Margaret Reed O’Shaughnessy," and a cover of Scottish band The Waterboys' "The Whole Of The Moon" on a Kenny O'Brien & the O'Douls EP that drops February 28 via Bad Timing Records. Listen to the new song below.
In other news, Kevin, The Weakerthans' John K Samson, and Worriers (solo) are doing a West Coast tour in May:
