Graham WilkinsonThe Spiritual Accessories E.P. (Little Windmill)
While its five songs purportedly deal with spirituality on different levels, The Spiritual Accessories E.P. doesn't deliver enough variety or insight. With a reggae bounce and whispered rasp, Wilkinson recalls Michael Franti channeling Bob Schneider, but instead of enticing, he becomes annoying. Anthemic standout "This World" begs "Tell me one thing I've never heard before," and one wishes he'd delivered on the sentiment.
