Donovan's first release with his newly formed band The 13th Month sees the lone Skygreen Leopard in fine form and great company. This is a wonderful taste of his upcoming album!

Donovan Quinn & The 13th Month - Sister Alchemy 7Donovan Quinn & The 13th Month - Sister Alchemy 7" Out of the gates the A-side feels a little more clearheaded and beautifully melancholy than much of Quinn's previous work with and without perennial foil Glenn Donaldson. Here Quinn's songwriting is washed clean
and much like the recent sheen on work by kindred spirit James Jackson Toth, the polish only makes Quinn's talent shine brighter. "Sister Alchemy" is a shuffling last call to a bar of 6 regulars; comfortable but not without an air of lingering sadness. The B-Side is still clean but has just a twinge of Donovan's psych roots in the vocal delivery though this is quickly put aside by the tugging tones of pedal steel and soft hammering of piano. This single definitely leaves me wanting more, much more in fact. If Donovan's upcoming album stays this course it looks to be wonderful indeed.
