Daeves cuts slack on newest album “Whatever Before The Storm”

Daeves cuts slack on newest album “Whatever Before The Storm”

Daeves is the indie rock project of Devon Murphy, a multi-instrumentalist songwriter hailing from Acton, MA. On his latest release, Whatever Before The Storm, Murphy wields a slacker sensibility through songs inspired by new wave folk and indie music. Murphy’s casual disposition and breathy baritone call comparisons to Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon, while the album’s instrumentation (performed solely by Murphy himself) calls to mind the looseness of Pavement, with the structural know-how of Real Estate. Despite it’s unconcerned title, Whatever Before The Storm is a sturdy new release worthy of a listen. Stream the album below. -Charley Ruddell
