Our "Liner Notes" Intvw w/ Syd Matters

The French group Syd Matters is a band that we first discovered on a Paste Magazine CD sampler a few years back with their beautiful song "Obstacles". Since then, the band that has been compared to such acts as Radiohead, Nick Drake and Pink Floyd have put out their stellar 3rd album Ghost Days, which came out back in early 2008. It could be the band's best work to date, with standout tracks such as the tender "Cloudflakes" & "Everything Else", also "Anytime Now" and the fantastic climactic "Me And My Horses". Frontman Jonathan Morali recently sat down w/ us while in Brussels and chatted about the new album, his shyness, his start in the business and more.
