Jeffrey Lewis & the Junkyard+Diane Cluck
Lewis is definitive "anti-folk": The nasally, quasi-political, semi-spastic, lyrically blessed, playful folk-punk you've come to associate with acts such as the Moldy Peaches. Though Cluck is also anti-folk affiliated, her sound is more seriousshe is likely one of the most refined and elegant songwriters in all of neo-folkdom (freak-, anti-, whatevuh-). A brilliant idiosyncratic guitarist, a witty and wise lyricist, an imaginative melody writer with a powerful voice; her dark and introspective tunes are utterly captivating, sorta like an earthier Kate Bush. Watch her spellbind the room. With Anders Griffin and Pepi Ginsberg.
