My Records owner Joey Cape (Lagwagon, Bad Astronaut) brings us Scott Garth, the kind of real deal singer/songwriter that Elliot Smith only wishes he could be. For those of us who understand Armchair Martian, Drag The River, and Joey’s own works will get Scott Garth: Humble, defeated, optimistic, and a fine wrangler of melodies. Sometimes you see the Pacific Coast, sometimes you feel the Colorado frost, but you always hear damn good songs on this disc.
