We gave it a B+

There are disadvantages to being a well-kept secret. This disarmingly clever songwriter made a number of solo albums while working the deep fryer at Burger King; the fries sold better. His fourth CD Statecraft, which features the Pixies’ Joey Santiago on guitars, is loaded with laconic, stringently witty pop songs that sound like Lou Reed with an upside-down frown. Or Daniel Johnston on stronger meds.
