anti-folk punk dude: Jeffrey Lewis

New York cartoonist and anti-folk, lo-fi musician Jeffrey Lewis finally came into my radar this weekend after seeing the video posted below from my buddy Zach. A comparison to Kimya Dawson and The Moldy Peaches is the best way to describe his style--witty, honest lyrics with bare minimum musical structure beneath it. His 2001 album, The Last Time I Did Acid I Went Insane, is a nice start to his collection. Enjoy the passion in this album by snagging it from the comments.
