...When the Angels Make Contact

I've been digging Matt Mays' "...When the Angel Makes Contact" for a full 4 days now and highly recommend it. Its one of those albums so rich in aural landscape and eclectic in its genres (as any good soundtrack is) that I've yet to even listen to the lyrics. There are moments of Beck, Starflyer 59, and Ryan Adams throughout and there's not a song on the album which doesn't fit. On the whole, the album's a rare and great example of a start-to-finish piece of art. Beautiful. This is one for the a big pair of cushy headphones for sure. Enjoy.

Standout Track (if I had to pick one this morning):

Rough N' Tumble Come Down
This song sounds like the lovechild of Tom Petty and Portishead with the piano from Dylan's "Ballad of a Thin Man" thrown in for full creepy effect.
