New Music: Matty Fasano – ‘Unkind,’ ‘Unusual’

Matty FasanoAs we wait for ARMS to show off their Summer Skills, bassist Matty Fasano has made his solo debut: a digital 7″ featuring two somber piano ballads. It’s more dour and minor key than ARMS’ crackling indie-rock, with Radiohead’s quietest moments (“Pyramid Song”) or Liam Singer’s overlooked, intermittent genius the closest references. Hope there’s more on the way — so long as it doesn’t distract from that day job. (The tracks were also engineered by sometime-P4kers Matt LeMay and Nick Sylvester, guaranteeing this a future 7.6.)
