Devolver, the second solo album from Jamie Lenman, may well be the most eclectic album of his career to date, a smorgasbord of musical styles and elements fused together and filtered through the perspective of one of the country's finest songwriters. The evidence is plentiful; I Don’t Know Anything begins with a bass line that sounds like the procreated offspring of The Sugarhill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight and Queen’s Another One Bites the Dust. The industrial dirge that permeates throughout Mississippi evokes the dark, twisted downward spiral that percolates throughout the work of Nine Inch Nails. Bones sounds like louche lounge music that’s been hi-jacked by an overdriven bass tone, as if Norah Jones decided to jam with The Melvins after one too many G&Ts.
