It was a nice feeling coming home and finding a package from Rough Trade inside the door, containing Jeffrey's new album. I really, really liked his debut "The Last Time I Did Acid I Went Insane", and had really high expectations. And I didn't get disappointed. Jeff's quirky take on folk is the best I've heard in a long time. Intimate beautiful songs, mixed with harder garagey stuff which is just as beautiful, but in a different way. The lyrics range from a circle-of-life theme in "Back When I Was 4", to the record industry, realizing that you actually don't look much like a hippie anymore, and horror movie imagery in "If You Shoot The Head You Kill The Ghoul", this album containing both rather quiet introspection as well as desperation and frustration.
