Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

MATT THE ELECTRICIAN

Animal Boy

2010-01-26

Anyone who thanks chickens in their album liner notes is alright with me. Texas musician, Matt Sever (who really was an electrician at one time) does just that on this, his sixth album. I'll forgive him for covering "Faithfully", because I quite liked the rest of this release. It's full of fun instrumentation provided by Matt, his producer, Mark Addison, and occasional guests. The narrative lyrics are fun and hold my interest...I want to know what happens next. It's hard for me to pick a favorite here, but check out "For Angela" or the title track for starters.
