Devil Makes Three
The Devil Makes Three (Santa Cruz/Davis) gets busy when the weather gets nice — first by touring all of spring in support of Do Wrong Right (April 21, Milan Records). Better yet, those honky tonks saved some excitement for the summer: last week DM3 released a quality studio session at KEXP Seattle, recorded back in May. What better way to capture timeless yet spicy folkabilly, in three-part harmonies and natural rhythm, than a live studio session? The EP includes four tracks and audio of the interview, and is available digitally on iTunes.

Wait, there’s more! In related news, DM3’s Pete Bernhard has finalized Straight Line (Milan Records), his solo debut announced for release September 15. Bernhard’s offshoot shines down the sandpaper of his voice, possessing a greater likelihood to belt out a genial ballad. While Do Right Wrong was recorded in the basement of the trio’s Davis abode, Bernhard did Straight Line also at home, but in a bedroom two stories up. Check his MySpace for mid-September solo dates in the area.
