An Aaron Lee Tasjan song has a kind of laid back anger, a cutting insight and a wicked solo guitar style that sounds like many different instruments, even in the same song.

Tasjan is a graduate of glam rock, having been an early member of Semi Precious Weapons, but has now moved to a very personal form of the singer-songwriter format. His guitar playing may start sounding like any other finger-picking folkie, but not ever for long. Effects, nimble fingers and a variety of attacks on the strings result in a sound that is Tasjan's own.

In this cool, solo set, Tasjan played a new song, "Don't Walk Away," from his upcoming EP, "Crooked River Burning," a song premiered on the American Songwriter website. He also sang of "Drugs and Junk Food," a song from his album "The Thinking Man's Filth," a song that ends with a frenzy that actually does sound fueled by caffeine and Twinkies, or, perhaps, something less legal.

In the final song, "Streets of Galilee," Tasjan expounds on MTV, television in general, Kurt Cobain, snap braces, Ohio, the Beatles, the sinful fruits of the electric guitar, Ted Nugent, flaming arrows and more, all in a style that sounds like a cross between Todd Snider and the late Mitch Hedberg.

Aaron Lee Tasjan may have some anger in him, but he sure has a lot of talent and humor to temper it.
