how is his new stuff whiny but his old stuff isn't? you can say all his old albums all the way back to his demos are "whiny" too. tapes from the crypt is super "whiny." you can like the old stuff better without insulting the new shit, because manhattan is a fantastic album.
I'm a latecomer to Jeffrey Lewis; I generally resist this type of music. Only, when I finally heard it, it wasn't the "type" I thought it was, the guy is a true original, and won me over by the second song. And I'm a tough bastard to win over.
he did his 'mosquito mass murderer' the other week when i saw with instruments and the guy from the holy modal rounders, he needs to release it!
@ imamoonbubble i dont quite understand, by that logic if you are amazing AND popular you have sold out?
