The Devil Whale 

June 2, Flying M Coffeegarage

Last month, Salt Lake City-based popsters The Devil Whale opened for Seattle's The Head and the Heart at Neurolux. Readers know of BW's love affair with THATH--reason enough to catch this act when they hit our shores again this week.

Devil Whale's recently released second album, Teeth (Young Wives), has more bite than the debut. "Earthquake Dreams" evokes the emotion that has become the signature of songwriter Brinton Jones and longtime collaborator Jake Fish. Add bandmates Cameron Runyan, Wren Kennedy and Jamie Timm to the mix and The Devil Whale swims with the best of them.

Whether they had the May 21 end-of-the-world deadline in mind when writing "The End (Isn't Coming)," lyrics like "You can keep screaming at your crystal ball / but it just needs a hug / The end isn't coming / it's having buyer's remorse," are timely--and serenely humorous.
