Devon Williams Gets Frisky

Posted by Mark Lore on Fri, Sep 4, 2009 at 5:38 AM

Devon Williams is the kind of nondescript name I might normally gloss over... especially if preceded by the godawful words "singer-songwriter." But I looked into it after reading that Williams had signed to Slumberland Records, which has been on a hot streak with releases from Crystal Stilts, Liechtenstein and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

Not surprisingly, Williams writes some incredibly catchy pop songs that sorta tiptoe into Jonathan Richman territory—sorta sweet, sorta clever, all with a fine dusting of reverb. He's releasing a new seven-inch titled Sufferer (out on September 22nd), and Williams will perform this Saturday at East End with Little Claw. The songs are pretty tame on wax, but I have a feeling they'll get a little frisky live.
