"THomas Patrick Maguire Pissing Streams Review"

Now I frankly have no idea what the hell 'anti-folk' as a genre is supposed to be or mean, but I am informed that Mr Maguire is one such performer. I assume that it is a marketing concept aimed at attracting the bright young disaffected things who've heard a Beck song they liked to pay attention.

And if they do, then a job well done. New York based Thomas Patrick Maguire readily fits into the whole lo-fi acoustic idiom, and fortunately, the number of songs about urinating is limited. There are some wry observations tucked away in these grooves, but with 21 tracks on offer, there is some chaff to be sorted through to get at the really good stuff.

There are some Lemonhead momenst, especially "My Situation", probably the best rack here, some keen slices of life on "Drunk Stumbling Guy" and "Sometimes",and a way with words that keeps you listening. And even if there are too many songs, the CD only sets you back $7, so you can make your own compilation from your favourites. Different and interesting.
