I first heard Kevin Devine about nine years ago after he opened up for Bob Mould in Annapolis. I've been a fan of his (and his old band Miracle of '86) ever since. In 2010, Devine joined forces with Atlanta indie rockers Manchester Orchestra to form Bad Books (Devine and Andy Hull share vocal duties). Their second album -- aptly titled "II" -- was released this past October and I can attest for its greatness. Here's a live acoustic version of Petite Mort (Devine takes the lead vocals on this one).
