Entry #38 – Matthew Good's "Vancouver"

Last modified on July 26th, 2009

On October 6th, Matthew Good’s next studio album, “Vancouver”, will hit stores nationwide. Matt’s last studio album, Hospital Music, opened at the number one spot on the Canadian charts, and also hit number six or number seven on the US alternative charts.

I’ve been a huge fan of Matt’s work for years, ever since my friend Kirsten came by my dorm room in university and slipped Last Of The Ghetto Astronauts into my CD player. In fact, I’m fairly certain that Matthew Good is the only artist in my entire CD collection where I’ve gone to great lengths to own every single album, including some of the special editions discs.

I’ve gotten to know Matt over the last few years, and not only is he a great musician, but he’s also a great guy, and a good friend. A month prior to the release of the album, on September 6th, Matt will be streaming the album in its entirety on his personal website, matthewgood.org. So make sure you bookmark those two dates in your calendar.
