Flood Switch - EP
The work of singer/songwriter Matt Erickson (originally associated with the band Toy Gun Cowboy), this EP delivers a cool vibe reminiscent of the California sunshine from which it hails, inviting the listener to drop the top on his convertible (or if you’re in my boat, take a chainsaw to the upper half of your Equinox, whatever it takes to get you in that zone) and simply enjoy the ride. You Are Dreaming is a sly romp through that familiar ex-girlfriend territory we can all relate to, The Next Heart You Break Will Be Your Own delivers intriguing vocal harmonies, and lastly Leaving Machine bears a Rolling Stones’esque vibe with the inclusion of a harmonica (I think), and stakes its claim as my personal favorite of the four.
Bottom line, this is one hell of an EP that leaves me begging for more because my morning commute to work is about four times the length of what is available, and once that final note plays out of the speakers I am disappointed that I have to find something else to fill that gap. Tip of that hat to Matt, because you sir are rocking the right way.
