Every year at about this time I wonder what I’m doing with my life and why it is that I’m not about to get on a plane to Texas to go to the SXSWs and listen to all the musics from all the peoples I’ll be loving for the next couple of years. Hearing this track from WA’s Matt Gresham isn’t helping this issue, as I’m pretty sure these beats are going to be stuck in my head for the next couple of days and I’ll be wishing I could make it to Austin to see him play this year’s edition of SXSW (he’s on at midnight on March 18, if anyone wanted to buy me a flight and a ticket, by the way). Such a simple but addictive little tune, ‘Small Voices’ is a perfectly written pop tune, starting small, slowly building to a hook I can’t seem to get outta my head and that voice of Mr Gresham’s that is anything but small. (See what I said there? I know, you’re welcome.) Looking forward to hearing more with the release of an EP sometime (hopefully!) soon and if anyone who knows someone is reading this, someone book this guy for BIGSOUND!
