Star Hustler's primary M.O. is cleaned-up, indie-oriented rock and pop of a singer/songwriter variety, a style that puts all of its eggs into the basket of Jason Hatfield's songwriting. Fortunately, Hatfield's songwriting is always effective and occasionally beautiful. Mendicant uses a lineup of musicians including John Strohm of Antenna and Shawn King Devlin of Helium to lay out a collection of earnest and wholly appealing pop.
