For Devinyl Splits No. 12, The Front Bottoms and Kevin Devine bring to the forefront their long history as friends, tourmates and collaborators. The Front Bottoms cover Kevin's "Just Stay," a song that originally appeared on Kevin's 2006 full-length Put Your Ghost To Rest. The band's cover is driven by feedback and a forceful sound that echoes throughout the room, putting quite the spin on the original acoustic beginning of that song.
Kevin covers The Front Bottoms' "Rhode Island," which was originally released on the band's 2011 debut self-titled LP. This full-band cover features The Front Bottoms themselves on the recording -- and vice versa, Kevin is featured on TFB's recording of "Just Stay."
