Richards looks like Buddy Holly and sounds a bit like Wilco with a side order of catchy pop hooks ala Marshall Crenshaw. Check out "Losers Day" and you'll see exactly what I mean. Other standouts are "What I Gave Away" and "Lets Just Talk About The Weather". Oh, and I also dig the exotic rhythms of "I Don't Know".

...What I Gave Away is a pure pop album. The tunes ring with chiming guitars and hummable melodies. This is not underground crap, but rather pop music in the classic sense...
