Oooh! A Brooklyn artist! This is a guy who just loves writing music, and gets wrapped up in several projects at once. He blogs at Synesthete Music, and that’s what keeps him in line. Here’s a cool thing here though – his boi says “each letter has a specific color, as do numbers” and “all sounds make distinct abstract images.” It’s funny, I had a friend in school who saw music in this way. He sees the look in the song, before the sound. This ‘condition,’ as he puts it, is known as Synesthesia. Not a bad story, eh? That’s enough to make me interested.

“Haunt Me” is first up, and right off the bat, this guy ROCKS. He’s got a great beat backing him up, and his voice is bright and welcoming. Yes, it’s Brooklyn rock, and quite frankly it’s weird hearing because I feel like that fad finally died down just enough recently. So maybe Matthew can actually find a place in this genre? With the production, he’s less gritty, and that’s kind of a refreshing sound.

While I’m actually thinking the track titles may be a little off, we go into number two, “Beautiful.” The sound isn’t what I would’ve expected for such a name, but we’ll go with it. Okay, well, the sound does come to grow on you in the minute or so until the lyrics finally come through. This one’s void of the Brooklyn sound in favor of a much more cosmic sort of theme. I can appreciate experimenting, and depending on how well this actually fits in with the remaining tracks, this could be a successful one.

“Anonymous” seems to fall between the two previous sounds in terms of type of sound. I can’t say I love it, but I appreciate that attention to making sure there is some sort of similarity in your music. That’s how you build a group of fans of the music, not just casual fans of a particular song. I do appreciate that guitar in the middle, but not the odd pronunciation of the title throughout.

Lyrically, “Exit Wound” gets a “wow.” It’s an interesting take on heartbreak for sure. Very creative and sinister in such a lightly-toned song, this was a bit unexpected. I still comes from an old thought where slower songs are supposed to be ballads, but this blows that out of the water.

“The Test Results” rounds things out, and I just… what happened to the rock start we started this off with? This is electronic and annoying. Oh, wait, there we go – a guitar. For the love of goodness, a guitar! It rounds out the song much better, leaving me with a much better taste than I almost had on leaving this set of songs. Good just Matthew Meyers, leave them with what’s best.

All right, well, that was sweet. I really did enjoy the overall compilation here, with everything just being different enough to present very original songs but not totally veering off form the original sound. I think this guy has a nice little run in him. I’d see him if he headed on over to my borough!
