San Francisco songwriter Donovan Quinn is anything but direct.?! With an enigmatic deadpan, he delivers lyrics written in a dense and fragmentary style; the influence of writers such as Malcolm Lowry and Thomas Pynchon figures just as heavily on his craft as that of Robyn Hitchcock, Pavement, Robert Forster and Skip Spence. Your Wicked Man is the second album from his primary band, Donovan Quinn and the 13th Month, created in collaboration with Jason Quever (Papercuts) as producer and multi-instrumentalist.?! In much the same way as his presence molded Cass McCombs' early efforts, Quever's contributions to Your Wicked Man serve Quinn's narratives with arrangements that vary from ornamental to rollicking to bare, pushing Quinn's embrace of rustic, poetic popcraft to the fore.?!

***DONVAN QUINN’s steadily growing reputation as a first rate darkly romantic penman (thanks to contributions to THE SKYGREEN LEOPARDS and solo as VERDURE) has culminated with his latest endeavor.?! Rather than aping or ducking genres, Quinn has crafted a bright spectrum of songs best described as 'American.' Xian folk, languid indie pop, VU cool, loner country and West Coast psych are touchstones, with Quinn's singular lyrical abilities and taste for sun-baked song steadily at the fore.?! Ever the flower bed romantic, Quinn has—at the risk of over-simplification—written a classic "break-up record;" albeit filtered through surrealistic tenderness and riddled with red herrings and feelings of betrothal.?! Though not exactly lost in a sea of scarves, Quinn is indebted to the vulnerability, humor and bitterness present in the works of Ronnie Lane, Skip Spence, Nikki Sudden and Basement Tapes-era Dylan.?! (STREET DATE - 9/23/2008).?!
