matt pond PA • Love to Get Used

Anyone who knows us knows we’re crazy for matt pond PA. We interviewed Mr. Pond himself last year when their most recent full-length was released and have been fans way back and the whens. So we were understandably psyched when we saw he was releasing an EP of new material. Giving the whole thing a listen, we can’t say we’re disappointed—it’s catchy, simply addictive music overlaid with Pond’s characteristically brooding vocals and poetic lyrics. What’s not to like? Check out the lead track from the Spring Fools EP, “Love to Get Used”—this week’s Song of the Week and a perfect end of summer, walk through the city tune. You can order the CD through Altitude Records or download it at Other Music or the iTunes. Early fall tour dates below and, evidently, more to come later.
