On his follow-up to 2011's Euphoria, . s Devon Williams expands his sonic palette with a cleaner and ultimately more relaxed rendering of his artful, romantic indie pop. The heavily chorused guitars and distinct echoes of classic new wave and power pop remain, but there is something softer and more contemplative about Gilding the Lily that puts a bit more focus on the songwriting and less on his many influences

Fans of complex, smart pop will be attracted to Williams' attention to detail, but the songwriting itself is also deeply melodic and more lyrically and emotionally honest than before. 66. The resultant sound is crisp and lovely, and on a clear mission to please its other (the listener, maybe?).

Pop tunesmith Devon Williams finds himself in this boat with his latest release and second for the revitalized Slumberland, the appropriately titled Gilding the Lily. Already a well-established and respected songwriter, Williams here forgoes any sense of personal identity in favor of genre exercises that, while often spot-on and pleasant enough to listen to in the moment, get lost in the shuffle of the dozens of artists currently aiming to replicate a decade in which a vast majority of them were not even born. Which is unfortunate as Gilding the Lily at it’s core really is a good album, it just doesn’t have enough present to differentiate itself from the pack. Perhaps once the ‘80s wave passes Williams can return to the decade that suits his approach to song craft the best, the 1960s. Before he does so, however, hopefully Gilding the Lily will bring him some of the attention his music so richly deserves.
