Donovan Quinn & The 13th Month
Quinn's second record under his own name leaves him close to his work with both Skygreen Leopards and Verdure but at the same time striking out in a more melancholic and solitary vein than either. This is a pure bummer psych record in the best of terms, but with just a touch of the setting sunlight that dappled the Leopards' meadow. This has been said to be Quinn's breakup record and the lyrical themes hint at such, but as usual he has a way of wrapping sorrow up in a surreal coat of colors; sad and slightly tattered but utterly handsome in its state of disrepair. Donovan has a barroom charm that comes through underneath his air of California calm, though the bar he occupies may well be slotted outside the normal scope of linear time and space. He's constantly strumming a weathered guitar in the corner of that same velveteen curtained stage, lamenting girls with sun in their hair that have long since aged, while he remains forever 25.
