has had a new record
available for about a month, and while he appears on Here Lies The Lion That Lied In Your Bed
without his backing band The Marthas
, it does mark his first full-length record. The songs are stripped-down compared with the band's typical trombone-laden fare, but feature a dynamic mix from precious solo-acoustic to gags; there's the lullabye-esque telling of the story of Christopher Columbus
, a Leadbelly
cover, and a download-only nugget called "The War Is Over!" that defies all explanation (keywords: George W. Bush. Chipmunk voices. Ragtime
). Pay what you want, $15 gets you a vinyl LP sometime down the line.
