I was writing a diary, but then I had to kill my browser for some reason. Drat.
I got on a Daniel Johnston kick last night because I was playing Wilco and their cover of the titular song came on. I've mentioned him before. He is a very good songwriter with occasional extreme mental problems. His work is incredibly inconsistent for that reason. He's a bit like the Mountain Goats, a solitary singer/songwriter who records mostly lo-fi stuff.
Because of the inconsistency of his work, I recommend looking at youtube video playlists to give him a whirl and see if you like him. People tend to make videos and video playlists only of the good songs.
A song of his you might know from covers of his work is "Speeding Motorcycle", covered by Yo La Tengo.
