dewey defeats truman
Girl Records (SG-034)
In preparation for a national tour and their debut album’s release (yes, the title "b-sides, rarities and out-takes" questions the need for such things), dewey have yet to stop the cycle of productivity which led to where we stand today. Readying hand-screened t-shirts, and posters for the audiences in cities that have yet to hear of their former outfits (Red Dye No.5 and Luper), these three men are poised to explain the deweyrawk phenomenon to as eager an audience that will attentively listen.
a comeback of sorts to Silver Girl, James and Scott (as drummer and bassist
of Red Dye No.5 who released a 7" on the label years ago) return
to the kicked-back vibe of San Diego’s uniquely diverse bedroom
label. Mark (guitar and vocals) comes to us from a band, Luper, that had
previously recorded super-pop demos (also sent to SGR HQ at random points
in time) but broke-apart like shards of glass too soon to "ink"
with urgency, and lacking in pretension, deweyrawk has become a flag these
three men wave with pride. Honesty in lyrical approach, dramatic rhythms,
as well as heavily-melodic guitar lines are the tools dewey defeats truman
use at their disposal -- it is the context the listener places the music
within, that will determine the future of these fine young men.
