Depswa means ‘deep behind the moon’ in Swahili. Depswa is also
a South American term for tribal healer. Do you want to know what MusicIncider
thinks Depswa really is? Depswa is a band from the city of angels with a raw
whirlpool of emotions. Depswa is not a Chevelle, and I like Chevelle. They are
no Staind. They are fresh. They are hard edged rock and roll. They remind of
Alice In Chains, Slayer, and Soundgarden. Jeremy Penick’s vocal style
reminds of Chris Cornell when he was with Soundgarden. Penick could be Cornell’s
little brother. I could see the two of them on stage together. The band would
be a great opener for Audioslave. I think Depswa would be a great opener for
the Foo Fighters as well. Dan Noonan and James Mills play like heavy twin Joe
Satriani’s. You can just feel the Satriani vibe in their playing. They
are playing from the gut as well as the head.

Ryan Burchfield’s bass playing reminds me of Tom Araya from Slayer.
Not to mention that these three guys do a hell of a job backing Pennick’s
vocals. Gordon Heckaman’s drum style reminds of Matt Cameron from Soundgarden
with a touch of Mick Fleetwood. This album is about personal discovery. Every
fucking song is different.THIS TIME- Everybody has relationship problems. Sometimes
you want to hurt the person you are with for one reason or another and you aren’t
sure why. Maybe the person has hurt you. Speak up. Honesty is the best policy.
NOT RESPONSIBLE- I don’t know what you are going to do when I tell you
that it is over baby. I don’t want to see your emotions. I don’t
want to hear your pleas. You brought the plane ticket. You took the ride. When
the plane crashes, it is not my fucking fault.NEEDLES- This is about a junkie
looking for answers. Each time he pushes that needle in he gets a little more
lost. There is no one to save him but himself. Nobody listens to his cries for

LET IT GO- Our hero in the song learned a lesson early in life. If you love
something, let it go. If it was meant to be, it will come back. He holds on
to this thought and prays that the love of his life that he let go comes back
to him. Me personally, I just think she was a money hungry bitch.PROM SONG-
This is a great song to propose to someone with. This is a great wedding song.
I could see the bride and groom banging their head to this when they do their
first dance as a married couple. In my opinion, this should be the first single
released off of the album.TWO ANGELS AND A DREAM- Our hero in this song is straight
out of Paradise Lost. He knows that the peace that he is searching for is somewhere
between heaven and hell. When is fucking soul wakes up, he will be right where
he needs to be.FROM THE INSIDE- It’s another love song. Love brings out
the best and the worst in people. Love is like a roller coaster-it has its ups
and downs. If you get on the right coaster-it will bring out the best in you.

Personally, I like the Dragon roller coaster at Play Land in Westchester County.VOYEUR-
Keep your blinds shut girls. There are too many peepers out there getting off
on you. Those peepers are just to shy to tell you how much they adore you. Peeping
can happen lots of different ways-through a computer, or the cubicle next to
you at work…give that shy person a chance. What do you have to lose? Those
peepers might be hot in bed.CHARADES- It is time to grow up baby. The games
have got to stop. You are just like me. Here are your options-give it a chance
or say goodbye to me.SILHOUETTE- Our hero loses the love of his life. He is
looking for what he had with her in other people. He is fucking angry-why did
she have to go? I think he is tired of getting burned. He just wants something
to hold on to.THE PATH- Our hero needs space and time to find himself in this
song. Just because he needs space and time, it does not mean that he has stopped
loving her. He wishes that things were not hard. He prays every night that she
will wait and not replace him-he is just asking for time.WHERE I’VE BEGUN-
Our hero in this song he stuck. He is trying to find a way out. He doesn’t
hurt anyone. I feel as though he is tired of being used-he wonders when the
pain will stop and life will begin again. This time he will not trust anyone.TRAVELER’S
SONG- This is a song about a person who was ridiculed and abused. Sometimes
a mouth can hurt more than a punch and that mouth can leave a scar that lasts
forever. Our hero in this song has finally found a way out. He keeps to himself
so he doesn’t get hurt.

This is a song for the American runaway. In twenty years, I can see this band
in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I think they deserve a Grammy nomination
for best new rock group. Depswa plays music from their hearts and souls. Their
lyrics speak from their life experience. I can’t wait to see them live.
They are worth the price of a ticket. If you can’t see them live, don’t
miss out on the cd.
