This dude was on NPR and I was actually impressed with what I heard. I don't know why, for some reason I just unilaterally ignored him for years but after actually giving it a listen I was pretty surprised. He's maybe a bit wordy as a lyricist (he seems much more concerned with the words than the way they'll sound actually sung...it comes off a little cumbersome at times) but in general I thought it was pretty good folky/lyric music.
Definitely not asking about his music when he said "Josh Ritter's BOOK for sale".
I've always enjoyed Josh's stuff, so I'm definitely going to pick this up.
