Mike Doughty left the successful alternative act Soul Coughing in 2000 to launch a solo career. His second official album, "Golden Delicious," is filled with quirky candy pop, including '80s-culture exploration "27 Jennifers" and "Fort Hood." The latter laments loss of innocence for American soldiers ("See them coming back, motionless, in an airport lounge") while appropriating a joyous Fifth Dimension chorus ("Let the sunshine in"). Doughty performs in our studio.
