His indie label, Kill Rock Stars is supposed to release some. A few days ago they released "Alameda (Alternate Version)" which is a different mix with some alternate instrument arrangements and alternate lyrics. If you sign up for their newsletter, they'll e-mail you an alternate mix of "Needle in the Hay" with trumpets and double tracked vocals. It might actually be cool to add that to the news article.

His music has helped me through a lot of troubled times. I don't know how I would cope without his music.
