Kalle Mattson Braces for an ‘Avalanche’ on New EP

Kalle Mattson‘s Someday, the Moon Will Be Gold was a record of triumph, of building big orchestral swells and bountiful arrangements out of devastation and his new EP finds him hunkering down, as the title suggests, in the face of the same emotional Avalanche. Like another great Canadian songwriter, Mattson uses natural disaster an organizing principle for personal turmoil, a way of understanding life’s occasional chaos and devastation.

Mattson’s reedy vocalizations and glittering instrumentation recalls a wide spectrum of  emotive rock weirdos, from Broken Social Scene to Bruce Springsteen and back again, making this six track EP a brisk listen despite the heavy lyrical content contained herein. Listen here in advance of its August 21 release on HOME Music Co.
