Q: What do you get when you combine the talents of Kevin Devine and Manchester Orchestra? A: Bad Books.

Bad Books may be a collaborative effort, but any fans of Devine will instantly recognize his stamp on this song. The Easy Mark & The Old Maid blends a slightly melancholy acoustic melody with raw lyricism to create a powerful track open to an array of personal interpretation.

Their self titled album hit the shelves October 19, but you can check out some songs for free at Bad Books’ MySpace page.
