Album Notes
“Weaving isolated instances of heartbreak and rejection, he creates a sound that remedies nostalgia while still delighting with melodic surprise.” -Paste

“The steady click of the wheels on the iron tracks are the rhythmic whispers of a muse singing for anyone who will listen.”
-Skope Magazine

“Matt Tarka inhabits a world of heartache, loss and hope—the usual haunts for a singer-songwriter whose work revolves around some distinctly universal themes. But the details and experiences he uses as the foundation of his work are truly unique and give each song specific altitude and meaning. His voice possesses an insular twang and wobble, the perfect vehicle for these weary ruminations. It's not unlike the specific vocal tenacity of a musician like John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats, but Tarka develops and maintains a pointed individuality that lends each song a remarkable emotional resonance.”
-'s Notes from the Left of the Dial

“There’s layers and depth to the music, vocals and lyrics which makes for a great listen and makes us eager to hear more.”

“Matt Tarka is an indie pop time warp....Powerful melodies, a bit of sugary sweetness, and a delightful propulsiveness that belies the heartache that provides the lyrical matter. It’s a four-song chunk of solid songwriting and catchiness” -PopShifter
