Matt Maltese – Krystal – indie rock
As 2019 comes to a close, we can look back and confidently say that it will be remembered as a fantastic year for music. The sheer amount of talent from independent artist this year has been surreal, and picking a favorite album was incredibly difficult, but I believe that one artist in particular stands out from the rest! Matt Maltese’s Krystal is beautiful, yet hard to describe, it’s an incredibly complex and dynamic album that leaves you listening over and over again, trying to pick out all the subtle nuances of each track. Matt has such a distinct tone that stands out from the rest and classifies him in a league of his own. Matt uses incredibly satisfying and unique blends of old school arrangements, and modern songwriting to create an incredibly fresh and unique sound that I have yet to hear anywhere else. His lyric’s range from the dark and obscure, to soft and tender and tote the line of pure poetry. Everything Matt has done in the past has taken on a life of its own, and his latest release is no different. If you’ve never heard of Matt Maltese, I cant recommend him enough!
Recommended Tracks: “Rom-Com Gone Wrong” and “When You Wash Your Hair”
