Why not acknowledge this day? People really like to polarize this “holiday” but I think it’s just an amusing thing. The shades of red and pink, the massive amounts of cards, roses, chocolate and other themed goods, it’s kind of funny.
And why not take a hot second to listen to some cute music? It’s your free pass today. Download the compilation for FREE here.
Fierce acoustic chops and a deep soulful rhythm will blow you out of the water on Matt Cranstoun’s latest release, The Last Drop of Color.
The album opener “5th Street Lights” has a new anthemic feel that effortlessly builds and builds, perfectly setting the tone. “Tattoo” is what I’d like to call a slow-burner, something that creeps slowly into your eardrums and makes itself right at home. Cranstoun’s like a folkier David Gray who croons with intensity that makes you believe his sound isn’t just appealing, it’s massively appealing. Plus, he frequently enlists a gospel choir for backing help which is pretty damn amazing.
If you’re in New York City tonight then get down to the Mercury Lounge where Matt’s holding his album release show and playing alongside others such as Chris Cubeta & The Liars Club and Brian Bonz. Having seen the real thing live at CMJ (shout out to Feeling Anxious PR) Daryl and I can truly attest this man has got incredible stage presence and will throw on one hell of a set.
