  • Summary: The fourth LP for the singer-songwriter (who is also a member of The Thorns) is his first without longtime producer Brendan O'Brien, as Droge handles production chores himself.

  1. He does it all so proficiently, you can't help but want to have the guy hang out in your CD player for awhile.
  2. His most scaled-down and homey sound to date.
  3. Droge delivers his melodies with an audible grin that lets us know he accepts these songs for the cheerful foot-tappers they are; nothing more, nothing less.
  4. Charming and finely crafted singer-songwriter indie-pop that deserves a bigger audience.
  5. 70
