Easy Love is an all acoustic album with a back porch vibe. It’s an overnight road-trip to home with the windows down. Matt again shows his prowess playing most all the instruments on the album.

Robyn Hitchcock – The Man Upstairs (2014)

Modern standards like Roxy Music’s “To Turn You On,” The Doors’ “The Crystal Ship” and The Psychedelic Furs’ “The Ghost In You” are interlaced with lesser-known gems from such pals as Grant-Lee Phillips (“Don’t Look Down”) and I Was A King (“Ferries”), the latter featuring harmony vocals and guitar from the Norwegian indiepop combo’s own Anne Lise Frøkedal. Meanwhile, new Hitchcock originals like “Trouble In Your Blood” and “Comme Toujours” stand among his most fragile and heartfelt, his stark vocal and guitar cast by Boyd against simple, autumnal backing from longtime collaborators Jenny Adejayan (cello), Charlie Francis (piano), and the aforementioned Frøkedal (harmonies).
