Well, I’m a bit new around here, but had to spread the word about Matt Pond PA’s new album. It’s called The Dark Leaves, and it’s due out April 6th via Altitude Records.
Someone (whose name starts with a “T” and rhymes with Mobler) described them to me as a more accessible version of The Shins, and I think that’s a fairly good description. I am in love with their catchy beats and rockin’ sounds, intermingled with those wonderful strings. …Oh those strings. I’m discovering that I’m a sucker for almost anything with a cello.
Anyway, get excited for this record, because these guys put out some amazing music. Here’s a few tracks to prove it. The first one, Starting, is from their new record. It’s got all the bells and whistles we’ve come to expect from Matt Pond. The second is one of my absolute favorites.
