Consumer Guide Reviews:

Pig Lib [Matador, 2003]
should have figured he'd turn fussbudget on us eventually ("1% of One," "Vanessa From Queens") ***

Real Emotional Trash [Matador, 2008]
A jam band for middle-aged neurotics who gather where most of their kind gather--their living rooms ("Hopscotch Willie," "Dragonfly Pie"). ***

Sparkle Hard [Matador, 2018]
On his best album in years, his two most fetching melodies power his most representational lyrics ever ("Bike Lane," "Refute") ***
