Woody Guthrie's guitar was emblazoned with the words "This machine kills fascists." Bhi Bhiman's guitar should read "This machine kills the humorless."

With wit, tunefulness and an unrestrained voice, Bhiman takes aim at the alienation, hypocrisy and absurdity of the current age. His approach recalls the aforementioned Guthrie, as well as Phil Ochs and a new generation of troubadours like Joe Pug and the Tallest Man Earth. But the Sri Lankan-American and former St. Louisian isn't all politics and satire. Take note of the lovely, finger-picked hymn of simple thanks "Take What I'm Given."
