Artist: Malgre Lui Track: "Mercy Over Justice" Listen
Props to my homie from way back, Jamison Lee, who was featured on the All Songs Considered blog at NPR.org.
Recording as Malgre Lui and under his own name, his work was always been awesome. He trades in a poignant, hyper-self-conscious testimonial folk with perfect arrangements that borrow from Hall, Oates and Pedro the Lion, as well as Steely Dan and Queen. This track, off a six-song EP, is a good introduction.
