Armed with a piano, a faithful string quartet, fierce pop sensibilities, and more uncomfortable jokes than you can shake a long Freudian stick at, Patrick Ehlers releases his first solo CD - "A Better Glass." Recorded with his friends in Appleton, Wisconsin, "A Better Glass" represents three years of songwriting and several months of intensive studio time. Tackling topics like performing surgery on oneself, one-night stands, feeling old, and sex triumphing over religion, the lyrics range from embarrassingly personal to embarrassingly impersonal, from heart crushing to side splitting, and from stirringly insightful to charmingly juvenile. Give the album a spin, the only person to hate it so far is an 11 year old girl from St Louis named Molly. And she doesn't know shit.
