Contest: Mike Doughty is Golden Delicious

When I was in college, I loved a band called Soul Coughing. Not only did it seem like the best name for a band ever, the music was perfect for almost any occasion: parties, hanging out, studying. I actually got to see the band perform at Summer Stage in Central Park back before the turn of the century and even had water splashed on me by the frontman, Mike Doughty (it was REALLY hot that day). So you can imagine how excited I was to learn that Mike has a new solo album called Golden Delicious, it’s gooood, and is touring with his new band to promote it. Just like the old days, the music is upbeat, quirky and catchy. The only difference is he now has hair!

  • The first single off of the new album is "27 Jennifers" – listen to it here:
  • Windows: low, high
  • Quicktime: low, high
