Famed band Devo
(mostly famous in the outside world for Top 20 hit Whip It
) has a new album, due fall 2009.
The album is a follow-up to the success of their 2007 single Watch Us Work It
, notably used in a Dell commercial
. They're already started playing three of the songs from it live:
Don't Shoot, I'm A Man
What We Do
Though some devotees say that Devo started to decline in quality after their third album, I wholeheartedly disagree. While their sixth and seventh albums (Shout and Total Devo, respectively) may have been mediocre (and even those had a few good cuts
), their eighth album (Smooth Noodle Maps), featuring a cover of Morning Dew
, is surprisingly overlooked
. The new material most resembles songs
from their eighth album.
[While I fully endorse the practice of building links, I've removed some links to Wikipedia pages discussing the albums to keep this post from being just links.]
[Further, a lot of the songs I wish to link to were not available on Youtube. If you want to follow along with this post, buy their albums or torrent them and set aside about six months of your life.]
