I’ve got Pure Comedy on heavy roation here at present and the more I listen, the more I hear the daddy of soul-exposing, Loudon Wainwright III. Crafted words, slightly surprising melodies (but only slightly) and a plaintiffness that makes you stop and pay attention. In short, he acheieves every songwriters aim — to make you take notice.
