If you guys aren't listening to this god help you. I searched but didn't find a topic just for this guy. I've recently gotten into him pretty hardcore and what i've found is just amazing. Take a listen to "The Swimming Hour" from this guy and compare it to his first band (violinist for Squirrel Nut Zippers)...This is an amazing musician that everyone should listen to.
 
-on the tracks that are easiest to get into he sounds like a cross between Stephen Malkmus and Howe Gelb

I really like his album "The Mysterious Production of Eggs" but I think that's the answer many people would give.  My brother saw him not too long ago, he said it was amazing how his sound just filled up the venue completely.  I really wish I could see him sometime at an enclosed venue.

i've enjoyed "mysterious production of eggs" quite a lot as well and need to pick up some of his earlier stuff.

i've heard that he's excellent live.
