If you like The Shins or Death Cab for Cutie, the new MATT POND PA album - "SEVERAL ARROWS LATER" - comes out today. I think it's better than Death Cab's "PLANS." You should buy it.
Much like on my Dylan post last week, I don't want to beat a dead horse here. I've written about Pond before... he was even my first post on my previoius, short-lived music blog.
Check out these tracks and see what you think. Rolling Stone magazine called them one of the next bands to watch. That'll probably be the kiss of death for them, but don't let that stop you.
