The Independent Culture

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.
