Album: Mike Doughty, Yes and Also Yes (Snack Bar)
Sunday 22 January 2012
The fourth solo album from Doughty is his most focused and upbeat to date.
Almost every track sounds like a potential single in an indie rock/ Americana kind of way, in particular the sublime "Holiday" – a moving yet cheering duet with Rosanne Cash. Soul Coughing fans may still miss the edgy beat-poet Dadaist that fronted that innovative and underrated 1990s band, but now that the man's happier in his own skin he's a far more formidable talent.
