Consumer Guide Reviews:

Bitter Honey [SpinArt, 2006]
The best of these songs are so perfectly put they thrive solo acoustic--but could still use a band ("Ballad of Bitter Honey," "I Wasn't Really Drunk"). *

Lose Big [429, 2008]
"True freedom from all earthly constraints" is a chimera, right, but Clem Snide's greatest melody helps you forget it ("I Love the Unknown," "Could Be Worse," "Apocalyptic Friend"). *
