I’ve always been a bit of a fan of Matt Pond PA, from way back in my early internet days (when I didn’t have an iPod, didn’t know about blogs and would stumble into music like a lost tourist).
He’s got this sound that I cannot identify with regular genre-labels. All I know is that when I hear his voice & his particular sound, I remember hours upon hours of work out in the hot sun with a billion burned cds in my truck - and I suppose the passing of time does this… but I recall those days with fondness.
He’s got a true-blue WNCW vibe. And I’ll always love that vibe.
