Joe Pug is, in short, a lyrical powerhouse.  Messenger is his latest album, and is a definite contender for best folk album of the year.  It has a twangier feel than his previous works, but I think that adds a certain country-ish charm to the music.  It should also be noted that Joe has a very distinct voice that some might find distracting.  I personally think it adds to the music, but everyone might not feel the same way I do.  And he seems like a really nice guy (he’s giving away sampler cds for free on his website) so if he ever comes to your town, GO SEE HIM.  His live shows seem amazing.
