Reviewed 2007-08-21 
A dirty old-time sound. Indie-folk? Acoustic instruments with minimal processing. Fun solo-project, guy sings and plays instruments. Low production values. First few numbers are upbeat, rest are downers, all songs good! Unfortunately some great tracks have FCCs, check lyric sheet.

1.Mid-slow yet jaunty. Near-whispered breathy vocal and cello. Time to die?
2.Elec guitar and voice through tinny megaphone combines for Tom Waits effect. FCC: says ‘apeshit’- see lyric sheet
3.Fiddle and banjo, gypsy sound
4.jazzy stand up bass and brushed snare. Fast & hot, but FCC: “fuckin hot”
5.slow sad lost-love song with voice, banjo, bass, a little tambourine & whistling?
6.sounds like bad night after the carnival closes- warped memory of love
7.heartbeat drum, spare. self-questioning
8.guitar, mid-tempo, plaintive violins. giving it all to your love
9.3/4 time, slow. Plucked banjo, bass, drums. FCC: f-word
10.Good loopy banjo pickin’, slow and seductive, getting happier
11.Hollow pickin’ and lost singin’. His repeated plea to "come home with me" is annoying. Nice ending drone.
