Format: Audio CD
This is the best compilation album I've ever bought. The thing it initially reminded me off the most was Beck's album 'One Foot In The Grave' and then like a ripe musical leek I started to peel back it's layers and cook gently.
There are a few tunes that don't hit the spot or are a bit 'I've got a good idea - oh no I was just a bit stoned' (Prewar Yardsdales's 'Weird', Joie Dead Blonde Girlfriend's 'Another Journey' to name but two). But mainly it's quality lo-fi strum & sing all the way.
Plenty has been written about Adam Green and Jeffrey Lewis and it's safe to say their contributions are as superb as the rest of their stuff.
Special mention has to go out to Ish Marquez though. His tune 'Gin Is Not My Friend' is an absolute corker. It's like a lo-fi Arthur Lee howling at the moon after a spicy tortilla and a few too many Gordons and is one of my favorite finds this year (2003). The mystery however is how he and many of the others (Brian Piltin, Jim Flynn and Brer Brian) haven't got record deals. Ish Marquez in particular brings up hardly anything on a Google search and there are rumours that he was well and truly screwed around by Rough Trade Records when it came to trying to get a deal. If his contribution is anything to go by he should be a star and Rough Trade have let a good thing slip by.
If you like lo-fi acoustic music with charm and oodles of humour and wit this really is a must buy (especially at the price). If however you like the really messy Moldy Peaches type stuff (extreme lo-fi) I would suggest approaching it with caution as it's far more tuneful. All in all... top shiznit.

Moldy Peaches compile something; I have to buy it. Dragged kicking and screaming from the stage of the Sidewalk Cafe Open Mike Spot, it's a pretty good compilation of Antifolk, with some old favourites (Adam Green, Stipplicon, Joie/Dead Blonde Girlfriend) some new songs from people I like (Jeffrey Lewis, Kimya Dawson) and loads of cool songs you wouldn't be able to find otherwise - self released albums and one off recordings. It yields such gems as Brer Brian's Harlem '99, Brian Piltin's Tramp Star and Lach ("Drinking beers with mom" -what a name). Overall it's pretty good - mostly "one man, his guitar and someone else's four track" style songs...if you like Jeff Lewis, it's mostly in a similar vein, but with enough variations to keep most of us interested. As a compilation, though, it beats Chilled Out Ibiza Anthems VII.

Format: Audio CD
This album is the epitome of indie from the New York antifolk scene. Nearly every song is a gem in it's own way, and each artists has something original about their means of expression. It is perfect in a way, a collection of each songwriter's very best songs, because following up the new artists revealed on the CD yields mostly disappointment. While 'drinking beers with Mom' is a classic of comic songwriting, Lach's 'Kids Fly Free' album is a stinker. Similarly, Turner Cody's contribution, 'Unconscious Repeat' is brilliantly wistful, but the rest of his material is mediocre. Major Matt Mason's albums are just plain annoying.
I would advise all fans of idiosyncratic folk to buy this collection, it is a modern revelation. But if you want to follow up any of the artists on it, stick to Jeffrey Lewis and the absolute genius of Diane Cluck. Her 'Monte carlo' here is the indisputed gem, worth the album price alone, a wonderfully witty and bittersweet melodic odyssey. As for The Moldy Peaches, it wasn't funny the first time, and it doesn't get any funnier.
