THE ONION's AVclub previews/reviews of "Highway Driveway" and "The Poquito Pioneer".

"Quasi-ambient electronica and dusty, fly-blown Western Americana may not seem like natural bedfellows, but in the hands of Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens, they mix like gin and tonic—two strong, distinctive flavors that somehow combine into something greater, and far more delectable, than the sum of its parts. Like Ennio Morricone jamming with Brian Eno as the house band of a rundown cantina in the Nevada desert, Stevens’ work evokes the beauty and loneliness of wide-open skies in fuzzy swathes of distorted sound and gorgeous keening timbres."
"In effect, they work as two sides of a single album—and a quite good one, at that."
