iTunes Review

Former Soul Coughing frontman and rock-club doorman Mike Doughty has always had an unusual ear for detail and his real life trials have kept his cynical wit sharp and hilarious. His self-released Yes and Also Yes should satisfy long-time fans and attract new listeners who will wonder how they overlooked this genuine songwriting talent. Rosanne Cash duets on the spritely but prickly pop number “Holiday (What Do You Want?), while Doughty slips in the brief and bizarre “Telegenic Exes, #1,” alongside several other short and interesting bursts of inspiration (“Russell,” “Have At It,” and the German-sung “Makelloser Man”). “Telegenic Exes, #2 (Astoria),” however, delves deeper with a haunting melody worthy of Paul Westerberg and a direct acoustic performance that’s quite affecting. “Rational Man” adds a cool new-wave touch. “Weird Summer” walks the streets with an attractive confidence. “Vegetable” works off a hip-hop, reggae atmosphere to face up to Doughty’s demons.  For straightforward pop hooks, there’s always “Into the Un” and “Na Na Nothing.”

Also Yes

It's quite simple. If you like Mike Doughty, buy this album. If you have never heard of Mike all of his albums. And then go see him play live when he comes to your town.


Mike Doughty just keeps getting better and better as the albums go by - I loved the low-fi Sad Man Happy Man, and now this is a brilliant cross between that and Haughty Melodic, but with some new, unexplored places. The songwriter has gotten better and better, but still kept that strange hipster groove that he's always had that really makes it special. Yes and Also Yes is in places hip, groovy, jangly, and haunting; all in all a brilliant release.


What I would expect. Thank you again, Mike, for making music that speaks to me.

Before emerging as a solo artist, Mike Doughty (known as M. Doughty during the early stages of his career) was best known as the frontman of the unique avant-garde group Soul Coughing.
