Matthew Good, Avalanche

By Sara Grawbarger

Whether the Matthew Good Band broke up because Matt Good is an asshole (as rumoured), or because the band had spent their creative energy, Matt Good’s decision to go solo was a good move. His new album Avalanche contains the best parts of the old Matthew Good material but is carried by a fresh electricity and vision.

The album is full of layered songs, all sounding different from each other, that are as heartbreaking and bitter as ever. They are, however, set to new drum beats, new guitar and the ever present orchestra.

The lyrics focus on Good’s own tired life’s place in the big picture of time and the world.

When you pick up this album, expect beautiful sounds and beautiful pain.
