Don't let me be misdiagnosed...

How to describe the music of Miighty Flashlight? These songs stagger. These songs are clumsy. These songs remind me of some dude with a scraggly beard playing a beat-up guitar on the front porch of a broken down log cabin, and it's all pretty charming. Miighty Flashlight aka Mike Fellows was formerly a member of Rites of Spring and has released two solo albums since then. Obscure photos make up the CD booklet, along with puzzling notes which leaves me with no clue what part of it is true and what isn't. The short blurb on Jade Tree says "armed with acoustic guitar and Powerbook, Mike has recorded songs that are hard to describe, but evoke images of him hovering 9 feet in the air holding a copy of Neil Young's "On The Beach" in one hand and Chris+Cosey's "Trance" in the other. And I have no clue what that means. But the tunes are quite endearing and somewhat haphazard, which somehow ends up being an interesting and enjoyable combination.
