Matthew Barber - The Story of Your Life
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Matthew Barber - The Story of Your LifeHe hails from Port Credit, Ontario and has a penchant for Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein. But don't hold that against him. Barber proves on his major-label debut EP that he’s capable of crafting crisp, memorable songs. He rocks out on “Landline,” about his struggles with new technology, dabbles in acoustic reggae on “Tilt-a-Whirl” and offers bittersweet country-rock harmonies on the title track. But the best is the soaring “Little Love,” a melodic tale of a laundromat romance that constitutes a genuine pop gem.
