The Many Sounds of Mason Jennings

Legbamel Not-Pop

I wanted to include the punk-folky Godless from Mason Jennings, as it's such an unusual song, but I thought that those of you unfamiliar with his more laid-back sound would not realize just how far astray this little song really lies for him. In order to clarify why I find this song so quirky and unexpected, I've included here both a live version of the entertaining Your New Man and the album version of Living in the Moment. I like Mason Jennings well enough in his usual acoustic/folk persona, but Godless gives you such a fraught and furious little story that I can't help but wonder what he'd sound like in a good punk band.
