Davis Tharp Writes What He Wants
Have you ever gone to a thrift shop and found the greatest knock off Rush cover band shirt (Rash)? Well I have, and let me tell you what. Some say this album was written by the Devil himself. Matthew Logan Vasquez, born in Put-in-Bay, South Bass Island, Ottawa County, Ohio is known for his taco crunching, finger licking, soul sizzling, coug flouging, scoot booting, cheese sniffin, nose pickin, hump shiftin, riffs and lyrics. If you listen to this album backwards it will not sound as good, at all. So don't. The only down side to this album is that when I put it in my 2003 Saturn Iron, the album begins to only play his crash cymbals, which might I say is beautiful in it's self. Buy this album. Don't just buy it. Buy it twice. Share it with your neighbors. Share it with your cat. Share it with your grandma. Share it with your gay pastor. Your uncle that stole the five dollars you left on the counter at thanksgiving, share it with him too. Your unborn child, your child, your sisters husband that likes NASCAR. The crappy barista at your local coffee shop. Thank you Matthew Logan Vasquez. Thank you for changing the world.
Yep I'm hearing a bit o the ELO/Jeff Lynne influence. Great sound.
About Matthew Logan Vasquez
Best-known as the co-founder and frontman for shape-shifting heartland indie rockers Delta Spirit, Matthew Logan Vasquez's fiery delivery and thought-provoking lyrics draw from a huge and versatile well of influences, including Gram Parsons, Kurt Cobain, Neil Young, and Iggy Pop. After releasing Delta Spirit's critically acclaimed fourth studio album, Into the Wide, in 2014, Vasquez moved with his wife and newborn son to Austin, Texas and began working on what would become his debut solo outing. The resulting Austin EP, which finds Vasquez manning every instrument and offering up a blistering set of outlaw psych rock, arrived in 2015, with plans to issue his debut long-player, Solicitor Returns, in early 2016. In January 2017, Vasquez issued "Same," the driving first single from his sophomore solo outing Does What He Wants, which arrived later that April. ~ James Christopher Monger
