Soft Abuse

Donovan Quinn

Dad Was Buried in His Leather Jacket

Donovan Quinn makes the leap back into solo activity with Dad Was Buried in His Leather Jacket, an EP of mostly uptempo story songs with character changes but consistent stories throughout each song. Herein Quinn writes about those at the end of a long series of parties, in the penumbra around the fun, just before all the booze and drugs and casual conversation turn sour…

A large cast of collaborators help to create the atmosphere of trouble hiding behind fun. Quinn’s New Bum’s partner Ben Chasny adds devastating shredder guitar to “Game with No Rules”, whereas Glenn Donaldson, the other half of Quinn’s duo Skygreen Leopards, adds textural synth and sweet high vocals. Others on board include Elisa Ambrogio (Magik Markers), Jason Quever (Papercuts), David Novick, Michael Tapscott (Odawas) and Eric Amerman, all of whom pushQuinn’s songs into surprising new sonic places.
