Since he started his own label, he has just been continuously ramping up his rate of releases. Now it seems he puts out at least 1 album a year plus a live LP or two and a disc of covers or a collaboration... I would love to be inundated with this amount of work from him, except his last five releases seem like as much work went into them combined as April.
