Deep Sea Diver – Ships

So I think we’ve had an ever changing naming convention here where sometimes the band name is first, and sometimes the song title is first. I’m going to try to consistently do what I didn’t do on the last few entries and put the band name first, just because it sounds right to me. Moving on…

Deep Sea Diver is basically Jessica Dobson and her band. You may recognize Jessica as the girl who played lead guitar for the Shins for the last couple years before leaving the band to get her solo project in gear, and the result is Deep Sea Diver. This is the first song off their first album, History Speaks. They opened for Telekinesis the other night and really put on a really good show despite a sparse attendance, which isn’t unusual for an opener on a Wednesday night.

I might as well as use the Shins as a reference point, and they sounds like a bit of a darker version of the Shins. I’m also a sucker for shifting time signatures, so I like this song a lot.

  • So good. Immaculate sounding. Like this a lot. Even though my internet is trying to chop up the audio like so much dubstep. Very good stuff.

  • Isn’t it, though? I bought their CD at the merch table and talked to her after the show and she was really sweet as well. Wish the crowd had been larger, but the set was great.
