The title of Matthew Broussard's debut album, Pedantic, suggests a sense of self-awareness, but that doesn't make Broussard any less insufferable.

Don't feel too bad if you confuse Ahmed Bharoocha's name with the title of his debut album, Almond Badoody – it's probably not going to hurt his feelings. The twenty-five track album recorded in Madison, Wisconsin and put out by Comedy Central Records starts with some jokes about name pronunciation, and Bharoocha's laid back style is immediately apparent.
