maybe Iron & Wine, Nick Drake, some of the Mountain Goats' early material. if you like slower/"sad"/lyrics-based folk music, you should enjoy it.

this is the first album of his i've loved back-to-back. i love the way Koz is basically going for broke in a certain respect, it's really helped to flip any meme that might have been made out of him onto its head. it helps that i'm from Ohio and have seen most of the little towns he's referencing haha

the only thing i'd like to add to your review is that "Ben's My Friend" is the perfect, most hilarious way to end a really dark album.

Haha, yeah, "Ben's My Friend" is entirely out of left field. I almost feel like it's a bonus chapter or something. I kind of wish "I watched the Film" was the closer, but I don't mind the sequencing as is.

Jim Wise is a gut punch of a song.

Truck Driver, Carissa, Jim Wise, Ben's My Friend. Hell, I can't really pick between them.

I'm partial to "Carissa," "I Can't Live Without My Mother's Love," and "I Watched the Film…"

Fantastic review and a very special record; really glad I finally got around to diving into his material. I started with the Modest Mouse cover album as well, and I honestly am in love with it haha. My favorites are actually the darkest songs, like "Pray for Newtown," "Richard Ramirez Died of Natural Causes," and "Jim Wise." Also think "Ben's My Friend" is the perfect closer haha.
