((Matt Pond PA)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Matt Pond is a person who fronts a band called Matt Pond PA. And they are a lovely band (lovely being the word most fitting for the sound these Philadelphians create). Supported by a guitarist, cellist, violinist and drummer, singer/songwriter Pond takes full advantage of his backing band to create lush melancholic songs shimmering with melody and soaring arrangements.

With such pensive lyrics -- intensely intimate and oftentimes tainted with regret -- one would think going to a Matt Pond PA show would be a big buzzkill. But their music is depressing like My Bloody Valentine is depressing. It doesn't make you want to sob your eyes out. It just helps you reflect on where you've been and where you're going. Or you could just get really drunk to it.
