Donovan Quinn & the 13th Month

Donovan Quinn & the 13th Month

Donovan Quinn is indebted to the vulnerability, humor and bitterness present in the works of Ronnie Lane, Nikki Sudden, Gene Clark and Basement Tapes-era Dylan. Rather than aping or ducking genres, Quinn crafted a bright spectrum of songs for his debut solo effort best described as American. Xian folk, languid indie pop, loner country, and west coast psych are touchstones, with Quinn’s singular lyrical abilities at the fore. Ever the flower bed romantic, Quinn has delivered a “break-up record,” albeit one rife with surrealistic tenderness and riddled with red herrings & feelings of betrothal. Weaving earthy melodies around Quinn’s characteristically hazy vocals is The 13th Month: a small rotating cast of players that includes Jason Quever (Papercuts), Karl Bauer (Axolotl), Hélène Renaut, and Jess Roberts.
