I'd say he sounds like a smurf. His voice is really beyond bearable. The music can have its moments though. Like "The laziest river" for example. Very eclectic stuff rooted in the eighties. Reminds me of my student years. Retro but pretty good retro.

the sound of an entire generation of music critics ossifying about half-remembered childhood referents

his actual speaking voice sounds like that so he's not putting it on (he was in front of me at the waldorf cold beer and wine once)

well see what descriptor you can come up with

anyway people who dislike Bejar's voice I don't mean to say you're not welcome itt but I will say you're wasting your time because Bejar is a great singer

I actually like that Mr. TS song but I'm struggling to see much of a connection. That name though, sheesh.

here's an interesting anecdote:

Frontman Dan Bejar had largely completed his soft-rock opus before asking Shabason to improvise over the recordings, where his ghostly saxophone lines proved to be the perfect complement to Bejar’s alternately hedonistic and weary narrator, hanging over every story like a heavy cologne.

that's from the review of recent Shabason album, but not sure what the source is? also, it seems, in my mind, more of a trumpet record than a sax record but maybe I'm misremembering
