Super Bon Bon!


If you haven't heard ex-Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty's Haughty Melodic (2005), you really ought to. Produced by ex-Semisonic frontman Dan Wilson (who helped bring the sound of Doughty's two previous sparse, solo records to a richer, fuller realm), and released on Dave Matthews's ATO label (new US home to Radiohead), it's a solid collection of pop songs that are decidedly more uplifting than Soul Coughing ever was, but weird enough to exist in the same family.

If the two new songs on Doughty's MySpace page are any indication, we can expect more of the same good stuff when his second ATO LP, Golden Delicious - produced again by Wilson - drops in February. In the meantime, you can check out his just-released live record, Half Smofe.
