For those of you who don’t know me…. a. why are you reading this blog? You creepers. And 2. I flipping love Mat Kearney’s music. He recently came out with a new album, Young Love. It rules. End of story. Go listen to it somewhere. iTunes has pretty long previews available, I’m sure most of his songs made it on to YouTube and there are some music videos on there.
He’s coming to the Boston House of Blues in a month. Naturally, I’m going. Last time he came to Boston, I met him and got a picture. That was flipping sweet.
This album is all about the get up and move style of music. It makes you want to dance and get into the emotions of the music. The story goes that he took stories from people he met and some of his own experiences for the influence in his songs.
Anyway, I listened to the new album non-stop for a week. There are a couple songs I can stand to skip now but nothing makes me think, ‘ugh, this song?’ That’s pretty rare for me. With almost 6000 songs to choose from on my iPod, there is always a reason to get to the next song. I’m sure one of my faithful readers is thinking, ‘hah! 6000? I got that beat no problem.’ I hope you appreciate the shout-out.
Since the album’s release, I’ve turned 3 new people on to Mat’s music. They’ve all enjoyed it thoroughly and I hope they turned 3 people on to it. Soon it will be like that movie with that ridiculous kid. (By the way, the current main picture on that link looks like he got punched in the face. Ha!)
I think that’s good enough for now. Dinner is calling and I’m out of material.
