Former Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty is a true multi-media artist: musician, songwriter, poet, playwright, photographer, and an avid, eloquent blogger. On this 2008 album, Doughty and Grammy-winning producer Dan Wilson worked with Doughty's touring band to craft a driven, organic sound around Mike's savvy, agile lyrical escapades. Lead track 'Fort Hood' is named for the U.S. army base that has suffered the greatest number of casualties in the Iraq War; the anthem was inspired by a visit to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. In less somber moments, 'Put It Down' is a hip-shaking Pop gem, and the fan favorite '27 Jennifers' was recorded with a live band for the first time. Golden Delicious is the follow-up to Doughty's album Haughty Melodic (2005). 11 tracks. ATO.
