    I like it. Nice mix of his bass with electronic elements without being annoying and “dubsteppy” about it. Id like to hear an entire album of his material.

    “Help Wanted” is definitely worth checking out. he also had a group in L.A. called Polarbear for a few years which put out a couple recordings in limited release.

    Had the pleasure of meeting Avery after one of the Garbage shows when he toured with them…I couldn’t have been more pleased. Totally nice, down to earth, humble guy, and even signed my Deconstruction CD! His album Help Wanted is good, but dark, like his current new song, Beneath the Ground. Still great though. And in response to Rick above me, I own one of the Polar Bear albums “Why Something Into Nothing” and its fantastic. I’m an Avery supporter all the way.
