Eef Barzelay - Ballad Of Bitter Honey

I have a feeling that Eef Barzelay's name might not be familiar to most of you. In fact, his band Clem Snide has always bridged on the borders of obscurity itself. While, I've liked the odd Clem Snide song, I never really paid too much attention to them. However, ever since I heard this solo song from Barzelay's first solo album Bitter Honey, I wished I had heard more by this band. While I found Clem Snide's work quite similar to a lot of other nerdish indie rock bands out there, Barzaley's solo work is a perfect combination of odd, quirky lyrics and a simple acoustic guitar. In this song, Barzelay sings about his ex-girlfriend being a music video with Ludacris, that is both sarcastic and emotional. Definitely don't let this solo album pass you by, and not this bonus song either.
