Doubt I'll Ever Make It

Friends tell me I'm missing something by not following Dexter Romweber, but Ruins of Berlin by the Dex Romweber Duo (with sister Sara on drums) hasn't changed my mind. I hear a guy writing entirely in the voice of his genre - song structures, lyrics, imagery, voice and guitar. What am I missing? There's nothing wrong with it, but I can't hear what would excite anyone but those so immersed in garage-ness that all of its iterations are intrinsically interesting - someone I haven't been in over 20 years.

Concur. He sounds now like he's trying to sound like something, whereas the Flat Duo Jets (early on anyway) sounded exactly like what they were.
