♬ Deep Sea Diver – History Speaks
I couldn’t be more excited about History Speaks, the debut LP from Jessica Dobson’s Deep Sea Diver. I caught a short set of DSD when they were opening for CampfireOK and Pickwick a couple months ago and they caught my ear right off the bat, so I’ve been waiting to get my hairy paws on this one for a while now. I’m seriously digging it – this is really creative stuff.
Jessica knows her way around a guitar, having performed on the road with Beck, Spoon and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs over the last couple of years. The girl can shred. Her new gig (outside of DSD – get some sleep, girl!!) finds her bending strings as part of the latest lineup of the Shins, along with Richard Swift and some serious talent supporting Mr. Mercer. Deep Sea Diver is slated to open for the Shins on part of the midwest leg of their tour in support of their new LP Port of Morrow in early June… somebody’s gonna have some sore fingertips.
History Speaks hits the market today and if you’re in the Seattle area you can catch their CD release party with the RFS staff tonight at Columbia City Theater.
