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. The band's distinct take on art-pop forms re-imagines early efforts from Mekons, Nikki Sudden and John Cale as filtered through Californian folk-rock.

In addition to fronting the 13th Month, Quinn also plays in psych-folk-pop duo The Skygreen Leopards (with Glenn Donaldson). Both bands have enjoyed a central stake in an eclectic, bustling San Francisco music scene that, after many years underground, is slowly emerging into the light.

"Listening to Donovan Quinn & the 13th Month reinforces the fact that Quinn is one of the stronger songwriters working in the psychedelic folk scene."

--Dusted

"The combination of good songs, evocative vocals and clever arrangements makes it a compelling listen, one to stroll through over and over."

--Terrascope
