Boxers or briefs?
Matthew Ryan, who has enjoyed a two-decade career, has refined the raucous poetry of his songwriting, creating his own working class aesthetic where beauty and darkness often trade punches from line to line -- intelligent, minimalist, and unapologetic. Ryan will release Boxers on October 14.
Last winter, Ryan set up shop at Applehead Studios in Woodstock, New York with a small team: producer and multi-instrumentalist Kevin Salem, The Gaslight Anthem's Brian Fallon on guitar, longtime collaborator Brian Bequette on bass, Joe Magistro (The Black Crowes, Rich Robinson) on drums, and Ryan himself on vocals and guitars. They hunkered down to do the work of making a loud, rattling rock album.
"It was a beautiful brotherhood," Ryan says. "In my mind, the record sounds like Crazy Horse-meets-early-The Replacements with nods to more recent bands I love like The National."
If you dig those bands and that style, then you gotta get with Matthew Ryan's Boxers!
Anyone plan to check out Boxers next month?
