Consumer Guide Reviews:

The Slow Wonder [Matador, 2004]
Compulsive craftsmen have feelings too--they're just nervous about letting them show ("Miracle Drug," "Come Crash"). ***

Get Guilty [Matador, 2009]
Working solo has its deficits, but also its opportunities--sharper hooks, lyrics that damn near signify ("Submarines of Stockholm," "Prophets"). **
