i've got the best of interventions

While browsing the tour schedules of some favorite musicians tonight, I noticed that Mike Doughty from Soul Coughing is currently performing solo material. His album Skittish/Rockity Roll (click to listen) is made up of an EP from 2003, and solo tracks that he originally recorded in 1996.

Forget what you know about his music with Soul Coughing. I was pleasantly surprised at his songwriting chops. It's rough and a little edgy, but eminently listenable. Not to be missed is his cover of Jody Watley's "Real Love" (I know, right?).

Check out the Mike Doughty website for the latest info. He has a new album coming out on May 3, called "Haughty Melodic." It was produced by Dan Wilson from Semisonic. Neat-o. I'll be keeping an eye out.

    He recently played a couple shows with drummer Kevin Sawka in Seattle. You might know Kevin from Siamese or KJ Sawka.
    Kevin plays wicked drum'n'bass type beats on a live kit. Pretty cool shows from what I heard.
