Song of the Day (12/16/09)

Playing archetypal indie rock with a folk tinge, matt pond PA of Philadelphia creates music that is very much in the same mode as Wilco, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, and Blind Pilot. At the helm is frontman Matt Pond who adds a distinct sincerity to each song with his impassioned—albeit rather rough-around-the-edges—croon. From the band's 2005 release, Several Arrows Later, is "So Much Trouble," an upbeat tune that combines these characteristic vocals with gravity-inducing strings, autumnal lyrics, and a warm guitar riff effected so that it resembles a cross between a bell and a xylophone. Perfect for a walk in the park to observe the final oranges and reds of fall before the grays of winter make their dominion absolute...
