Killing me, that’s what The State Of Gold is doing to my state of being. I’ve personally listened to NPR’s album stream of the new Matt Pond PA long player (13 tracks to be exact) way too many times not to post it up here because it is officially kicking my whining, indie listening, ass. I read the NPR write up, and I think the writer is afraid to be biased, treading lightly so to speak. So I’ll totally be biased here and say, The State Of Gold fecking rules. If I were to have to pick a favorite track I guess I would say that I would rather take Ewan McGregor’s Trainspotting toilet bowl heroin adventure journey than have to pick a song. Whatever, I won’t be like that, I’ll be biased again, it’s “The Starting Line”.
Pick up Matt Pond PA The State Of Gold via Doghouse Records this coming June 30th.
