I think Nathan Caswell might be a little too smart for me, since I don't get or appreciate a lot of his humour. Thank goodness this record came with little explanations of songs like Naked Cowboy ("A rebuke of the New York City Icon"), so I can think to myself, "Hey, that guy is annoying, isn't he?" A fun record of folky tunes, acoustic guitar and vocals with that harmless but oh-so-quirky Barenaked Ladies-style emphatic vocal delivery and some pared-down They Might Be Giants-y moments. Fun, if a tad on the wordy side.
Nathan Caswell plays C'est What tonight (Thursday, October 6).
