EVILMRSOD: The Gift: CD

I had low, floor-level expectations with a band name like that, but this was surprisingly cool. Like, I will listen to this again, and often. Comes across as an odd amalgam of Tom Waits-style spookiness and Americana/folk stuff à la Joe Pug. Not for everyone, but this layered, haunting, mostly acoustic album hit all right buttons for me. –Keith Rosson (Keep It A Secret)
