Matt Pond PA “Spring Fools EP” – Album Review

Straightforward snare hits, pressing guitar and Matt Pond’s slightly breathy vocals lead immediately into the first track off Matt Pond PA‘s new Spring Fools EP entitled “Love to Get Used.” “Let’s hang on to abandon, let’s hope we lose control, to be out in the open, baby, and let go of the road.”  This is perfect […]
