Joe Pernice, 

It Feels So Good When I Stop (Ashmont/Redeye)

Joe Pernice's voice greets you with sweet breath, breadth and warmth. The singer-guitarist's return is always welcome, even if it's for a primarily covers album. It Feels So Good When I Stop, which will strike fans as a perfectly Pernicean sentiment, is a novel soundtrack. (The book's out now too.) Pernice reads three short excerpts from his book into the record, illustrating just what music has meant to his narrator's (his?) life. Working with most of his Pernice Brothers cohorts, that old melancholic, melodic magic (Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me"), blended with that sometimes sad, sometimes blissful blue-eyed soul ("I'm Your Puppet" by Dan Penner and Spooner Oldham), hasn't lost a bit of its potency.
