From this week's issue
He's a great, vivid songwriter of fugitive struggle and Southern disaffection, expert at telling shattering dive-bar stories in quick, sad scenes. His voice is so hoarse you feel like you're getting secondhand smoke just by hearing it. He also has awful posture and long hair and is more than anything else a physical performer, sliding back and forth in his chair and twisting his guitar around and kicking up his legs.
