Oh Me Oh My

Eerie.freaky.haunting.melodicEerie.freaky.haunting.melodic.. There's no end to sparsely used adjectives that describe this 21-song foray into the Texas-born, 21-year-old 's fuddled mind. At first it seems to be some weird, gimmicky singer/songwriter shtick. Then fear sets in as the lyrics become distinguishable and the ambient white noise lurks in the background. But then you can't help but listen more, even giggle, as Devendra's vocals delve into some far-off fantasyland that's actually almost familiar. Indescribably odd, but he's onto something, even if it is just hard drugs.
