So Suomi, why don't you?: DAMION SUOMI (sue-me) !!! (vid and nearby tour dates)

Alt-country, calculated pop, or eerie emanations of bygone dusky barnyard sessions? Florida-native Damion Suomi is all of these things on his self-titled release from P is for Panda. For those that like their music interesting, bear through his opener, "Archer Women" for the good stuff in "Darwin, Jesus, The Devil & Me" and "San Francisco." Those songs have the indie hollowness of Iron and Wine with the rootsy energy of The Avett Brothers. Like the slow piece-by-piece demolition of a glorious honky-tonk saloon. Southern tour dates and vid of "Darwin, Jesus, The Devil & Me."
