Devin & The Dead Frets
“Devin & The Dead Frets”
Appropriately, frontman Devin Weber’s cat, nicknamed Beast, graces the cover of the band’s long-awaited debut recording. This is a beast of a rock ’n’ roll album, a raucously pleasing bunch of songs that show off Devin & The Dead Frets’ infectious, furious and passionate musical attack, as well as some surprising pop flavors. There’s still some of that Black Crowes-like bluesiness underlying the music churned out by longtime musical pals Weber, Jordan Kerbyson, Eric Batenburg and Zach Nelson (with a killer saxophone solo by Caleb Elzinga on “Edna”). But these guys from the Grand Rapids area have expanded and smartly honed their distinctive sound – not to mention their chops – through years of playing uber-energetic gigs. It shows on the explosive, pile-driving “Super Glue” and “Queens” as well as the shimmy-inducing “Better Brain” and the politically potent “Pistol.” Through it all, the rock guitars have a raw, real and ferocious roar. Like a beast. – John Sinkevics - Local Spins
