The Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter first broke through as a solo artist with the release of 2002's Circle Gets the Square, and he's released four albums since. The latest, Brother's Blood, infuses Devine's gentle folk side with a healthy dose of dissonance. The disc is melancholy, to be sure, but Devine explores his rock side along the way.
