Prob­a­bil­ity they’ll sack it off by al­bum three to open a cook­ery school in Wash­ing­ton State

Cook­ery is prob­a­bly a bit too rooted, but any poly­math is eas­ily dis­tracted. The odds of sack­ing off his band for a joint con­cept al­bum with

about David Byrne the sex life of Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton

Carver are pretty much nailed on. • Score: 3

Far too earnest to give up on the mu­sic, man: “I can’t even be­gin to ex­press the joy I get from writ­ing songs … I hold it all sa­cred. There is so much amaz­ing mu­sic … ” etc. • Score: 1 High. His ca­reer feels like one of those vi­ral con­fes­sional pieces in which a mil­len­nial com­plains about “never feel­ing truly adult”. The lore of the lat­ter-day au­then­tic­ity seeker is that he has to re­turn to craft­ing at some point, and cook­ery is sec­ond only to chair­mak­ing on that spir­i­tual plane. • Score: 5 If he shuf­fles off into any­thing it’s most likely to be his al­ready ma­tur­ing side­line as a techno DJ. • Score: 3
