Quin GalavisShould Have Known You (Thread Pull)
Stepping out from the garage-psych of Casual Victim Pile alums the Dead Space, Quin Galavis strips down and unplugs for his solo debut, an aching affair of indie folk, broke and drifting. He's an old soul and a natural storyteller, a combination beautifully accented in "Crooked Deals" and "Mary" by cello and harmony from pianist Shelley Mckann. Producer Orville Neeley deserves credit for the consistency he lends the country swoon of "What the Soul Takes" to Sixties pop "We Don't Care for Love."
