For the 2015 album by Jeffrey Lewis, see Manhattan (Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts album). 1982 studio album by Art Farmer Quintet. Studio album by. Art Farmer Quintet.
Lewis’ seventh album for Rough Trade, Manhattan, considers a changing New York, sorta kinda, but never head on. Like all his work, it’s thoughtful, humble, introspective, funny and endlessly digressive – perhaps appropriately, given the fine penmanship of his Robert Crumb-ish comic book illustrations, more about the fine detail than the broad strokes. Lewis is not the shy and faltering troubadour that cut his teeth playing solo songs at the Sidewalk Café back in the late ’90s. Here he fronts Los Bolts, a tin-pot not-quite-band of revolving membership, with producer Brian Speaker, drummer/singer Heather Wagner, bassist/keyboardist Caitlin Grey and guitarist Turner Cody – who played Will Oldham in the memorable video to Lewis’ 2005 single Williamsburg Will Oldham Horror – passing through.
Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts invite you on their existential misery tour of Manhattan. By Stephen Jenkins, 27 October 2015, 11:30 GMT. Manhattan. Release date: 30 October 2015. Country: United States. If you were having a fulfilled and meaningful 2015 up until now, then you may as well just go ahead and run yourself a cold shower, get in, sit down and let this album rock you back and forth into a nervous breakdown
Whilst Jeffrey Lewis’s self-knowing musings and musical personas will still remain an acquired peripheral taste for some, it’s pleasing that Manhattan finds him in such rude health, as arguably his most compelling and charismatic collection since 2007’s 12 Crass Songs.
Released with full color printed inner sleeve and four page full color insert. Includes mp3 download for the album and 2 bonus tracks. Continuous track-numbering on release. Mastered at Stirling Sound, NY (sic!). Pressing plant and lacquer cut info retrieved from runouts.

Longtime fans of Jeffrey Lewis treat each of his albums like a returning old friend. We know what to expect by now – scratchy, lo-fi punk and croaky anti-folk – yet we also know his lyrical wit still has the capacity to surprise. Outta Town is a perfect example, a Cribsesque love song that appears at first to conform to standard tropes – Is it Friday, is it Monday, I can’t tell without you? – but it transpires that Lewis’s lover hasn’t left him; she has just gone to visit her mum for a couple of days, leaving him to confront the fact that.
