Matt Pond PA
The Green Fury
T.J. Simon's #23 album for 2002
First Appeared at The Music Box, February 2003, Volume 10, #2
Written by T.J. Simon
Matt Pond PA (heís from Pennsylvania, get it?) has a voice reminiscent of Robert Smith of The Cure and a songwriting style similar to Josh Rouse or David Gray. His lush, symphonic brand of emotive pop gets better with each listen. Filled with string accompaniments and heartfelt lyrics, some might call Pondís music chamber pop, while others might call it emo (whatever that means). After hearing the lovely compositions on The Green Fury, including Canadian Song and City Plan, I just call it exceptional music. Ĺ
The Green Fury is available from Barnes & Noble.
