Toronto via Edmonton’s Matt Perri can croon with the very best. His newest self titled record is an absolute pleasure of song writing reminiscent of other Canadian golden boys like Kris Ellestad or John Southworth. His guitar writing has a gorgeous folk vibration alongside a great deal of ingenuity on both sides of the music/vocals coin. It is perhaps his knack for vocal melodies that make his progressions appear as if entirely renewed and set apart from past practitioners of the C major folk guild. I highly recommend this record. It’s well worth the few $s!
