The initial launch of Devinyl Splits back in January was met with incredibly open arms. No. 1, a release between Kevin Devine and Nada Surf's Matthew Caws, was a fantastic way to get the series off the ground, and we're beyond ready to keep the ball moving today with No. 2. The second split is a release between Kevin and Perfect Pussy's Meredith Graves. Pre-orders are now live. You want to know a little more about the songs? Well...
"Took The Ghost To The Movies" is the first song Meredith Graves has released under her own name. The song was recorded with fellow Perfect Pussy member Shaun Sutkus in a Brooklyn bedroom, with vocals recorded in a Melbourne hotel room. Fueled by an anxious pulse and filled with echoing, heart-heavy vocals, "Took The Ghost To The Movies" is a strikingly intimate side to the split 7".
Kevin Devine follows this track with "Gießen," a song written for old friend and former member of the Goddamn Band member Mike Skinner, who passed away in 2014. A tribute to old friends and old memories, "Gießen," is beautifully heartbreaking and honest. A memorial trust for Mike Skinner's son can be found HERE.
