Out today from Talent Moat is Brent Weinbach's second album, The Night Shift. The long-awaited follow-up to 2004's Tales from the Brown Side, The Night Shift continues in the same tradition of unconventional comedy albums as his debut - studio pieces in the style of Joe Frank (a noted influence on Weinbach), live material recorded at San Francisco's legendary Purple Onion, unhinged answering machine messages and some (non-comedic) songs that call to mind Tin Pan Alley. While this might paint Weinbach as someone uninterested in the conventional comedy album, much of The Night Shift is irresistibly funny - silly, surprising and oddly relatable from someone renowned for being strange.
The Night Shift Tour started last week and continues through November; go here for the dates. Pick up The Night Shift now from the AST store.
