An 'Obscenely Optimistic' Ukulele Jam : All Songs Considered : NPR
Jeremy Messersmith on NPR today. The music's growing on me, even if I can't yet bring myself to appreciate his technique.
Reminds me a lot of Stephin Merritt. It's like Stephin without the dark turns. Link to NPR featreu.
Sign up on Messersmith's site and you can download his songbook, 11 Obscenely Optimistic Songs For Ukulele: A Micro-Folk Record For The 21st Century And Beyond. He's encouraging people to record and post their own versions. Link to Messersmith's site
Seems like lots of people are doing covers. I like this one of "Everybody Gets a Kitten". Link
