Like I said before, I'm a fan of Clem Snide. The lead singer with the funny name of Eef Barzelay has just released his debut solo album, Bitter Honey.. The highly critical Pitchfork thinks it's pretty good.
When they settle down domestically, many rock artists seem to lose some of their spark, their hard-won happiness diluting the angst that made them so compelling in the first place. But on Bitter Honey, Barzelay thrives on the secret fears that lie beneath the surface of even the most secure relationships, torn by unwanted thoughts of personal freedom and suspicions that warmth and happiness are ultimately hollow and meaningless.
