All year round, it’s still summer. And indie rocker Matt Pond’s adventure continues. The brakes are shot, the pickup truck is rusted through and overheating. Everyone is out of their minds. “It’s not about reliving the past,” says Pond of the new album which features Laura Stevenson, Laura Burhenn, Caroline Reese and Anya Marina along with copilots, Chris Hansen, Shawn Alpay, Mel Guerison and Kyle Kelly-Yahner, “It’s about allowing the present to breathe. It’s about holding hands with ghosts and then letting go.” Download “Still Summer” off Still Summer any time between August 7th, and August 13th and learn more about matt pond PA at their Official Website, “Like” them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
Singer-songwriter Matt Pond is the driving force behind the band Matt Pond PA. This past November, the band released their eleventh album Winter Lives. The record is a bold celebration of what blooms in the coldest, stillest time of the year. By now, fans of the band are not unfamiliar with the enduring love affair Pond’s lyrics and arrangements have with his shift-shaping environment: an embodiment of the season, the beauty in a prosaic exchange, the weight of expectation and hope, a moment that says a kiss is not a promise. But it can be something close to the truth. Download “Whoa” off Winter Lives and learn more about Matt Pond PA at their Official Website, “Like” them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
