    Devon Williams, Wet Illustrated, Touchez

    Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Devon Williams has enjoyed an electric career spanning multiple bands since the late ‘90s. He first gained prominence with punk-pop trio Osker, who formed in 1998 when Williams was a sophomore in high school, and signed to Epitaph two years later, where the band released two records. By 2002, Osker had run its course and Williams moved on to alt-folk outfit Fingers Cut Megamachine,...

    Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Devon Williams has enjoyed an electric career spanning multiple bands since the late ‘90s. He first gained prominence with punk-pop trio Osker, who formed in 1998 when Williams was a sophomore in high school, and signed to Epitaph two years later, where the band released two records. By 2002, Osker had run its course and Williams moved on to alt-folk outfit Fingers Cut Megamachine, which earned comparisons to Bright Eyes and Iron & Wine. In 2007, Williams played guitar with romantic country-indie pop purveyors Lavender Diamond and dreamy noise popsters the Champagne Socialists as he readied his first 7” as a solo artist, which arrived on the LA Records label that June. His first solo LP, Carefree, followed in 2008, offering lushly orchestrated jangle pop and soft rock-influenced melodies buoying Williams' gentle musings on romance. Williams signed to Slumberland Records in 2009, releasing a pair of 7”s, with sophomore album Euphoria arriving in summer 2011.

    1x1x1 (preferably pronounced one by one by one) is the debut LP from Wet Illustrated, conceived slowly and methodically over the past two years in San Francisco. After playing and touring in various Bay area bands for years Robbie Simon (drums/vocals), Tim Hellman (guitar), and Chrys Nodal (guitar) decided to start a group committed to celebrating the legacies of weirdo pop outsiders like the Soft Boys, Guided By Voices and the Swell Maps--writing jagged pop songs imbued with skewed hooks and personal yet playful lyrics.

    Also featuring Touchez.
