Working with producer Jonathan Rado (Father John Misty, Whitney, Weyes Blood), Heidecker has delivered his most accomplished album to date. In addition to being absolutely gutting, the soulful “I'm Not Good Enough” is a masterclass in less-is-more songwriting. In just over two minutes, the soulful dirge brushes confidently against a big, “Hey Jude” melody before gently coming to a close and leaving you wanting more. It beckons you over to the turn table to reset the needle. The jaunty, Nilsson-nodding live favorite “When I Get Up” is perhaps one more joyful tunes about crushing depression we’ve heard. For a song about succumbing to the void in your bedridden funk, it’s got a lot of pep in its step. The closing piano ballad “Life’s Too Long,” is as close to a resolution as Heidecker will give us. “Life’s too long to stay in love,” he croons, a mournful organ the songs only accouterment. Enjoy the bittersweet moment and be thankful that Heidecker wraps up What The Brokenhearted Do... as he does, because next chapter for this divorcee is probably a midlife crisis full of neck tattoos and sports car debt.
