about

This is the incunabula of an official Devon DeJohn album; I'm still mulling the ebb and flow of the tracklist, and the surge of new song ideas. But at 7-tracks and counting, I can't really call it an EP...

So, gentlepeople, behold 'derelict'—a repertory of my most nagging artistic endeavors to date; a place where I have jettisoned as complete those isolated musical expressions that, in situ, betray an underlying theme (or current, if you catch my drift); derelict was not my design—rather, I have dredged it from some unfathomable deep, and am charting it as I go.

Too long; too many puns; didn't read: this is a self-aware concept album; beware of rip currents and marooning.
