Monday again, and time for another in our ongoing search for new and interesting music. Another suggestion from a friend on LastFM (thanks Jerseygrrl) leads me to this wonderful find.
Matt McIntosh’s video for his song ‘New England Rain’ from The Basement Demos.
Give him a listen, you won’t regret it.
Check out what others wrote about him.
Armed with little more than an acoustic guitar, backing track and more street cred than a Times Square hobo, longtime proponent of the American hardcore-punk movement, Matt McIntosh emerges from New England’s sideroads with a homegrown effort of genre-defying strength and depth.
McIntosh, along with a handful of artists who also came up in that venerable scene during the 80s and 90s, seem to reflect what is fast becoming a potent new generation of American singer-songwriter.
