employing minimal performance tools, BROUGHTON wilfully embraces elements of chaos, error, and malfunction, building them into his folk-ish narrative tales until one part destroys the other.

ever on twin precipices dividing tragedy from comedy and beauty from ruin, his semi-improvised, self-deprecating, lovelorn songs reward a patient audience with moments of delicate charm, all the time wondering whether he is truly in control of the situation. and yet, he always is.
