Matthew Logan Vasquez (from the album As All Get Out available on Nine Mile Records) (by Bryant Liggett)
Matthew Logan Vasquez’s latest album flows from place to place. It drifts from Roots Rock to Psychedelia, from slow groovers to ambient Rock, with one solid ripper, presenting each sound seamlessly. Yet with said movement, As All Get Out is cohesive while casual, with Matthew Logan Vasquez, as he has done with his band in The Delta Spirit, honing a unifying sound that keeps it all under one roof.
Tribal drums open the record on “Untouchable” as Vasquez sings of ‘West Texas winds’ before moving into the thumping “Over It”. “Odysseus” and “Long Line of Lovers” are both dramatic with their slow groove, and that aforementioned ripper comes on the speedy and reckless rocker “Can You Turn Me Up”. It is the perfect soundtrack to ask ‘can you turn me up, can you get me higher?’. That’s the barnburner of the album, placed perfectly in front of the Psychedelic “Holiday”. That is the one/two punch of As All Get Out.
Matthew Logan Vasquez drops great lyrical quips like ‘sympathetic strings with wedding rings are always hopeful’ from the ballad “Shawna” showcasing his writing, but the gem of the album is his ability to take you on a ever-drifting ride. Electric and eclectic, he moves from trippy-dreamy to thick and thumping; despite its brevity of eight songs, Matthew Logan Vasquez manages to cover a lot of ground.
