Album Notes
As a sort of sequel or perhaps prequel to last years seasonal EP \'6 Christmas tales...\', The Brigadier cooks up a new 6 track collection of Autumn flavoured songs ranging from uptempo stompers (Whatever happened to the Autumn?, To go on Holiday), to reflective and atmospheric ballads (The Same old Sunday, No one\'s ever here to see). The perfect antidote for the increasing lack of daylight...

A ray of sun in a cloudy sky
The Brigadier is a rainbow, each of his albums is a color that brightens every music lover's heart. That new seasonal EP is a proof that The Brigadier has nothing to prove. His talent is innate and unlikely to change. Thank you, Matt.

Autumn Leaves
A concept EP! Well sort of, in that the mood and lyrics of these songs deal with the varied facets of the bittersweet season. Musically, The Brigadier maintains his high standard for pop-rock writing. Check it out. . . you won't be disappointed.


Again....and again!!!
Wow...Matt \"The Supertalented Brigadier\" made it -again!!!!
Anoter perfect mix of catchy humorous songs like To go on Holiday and Whatever happened to the Autumn , to ADORABLY sweet and soft ballads like The Same old Sunday and No ones\'s ever here to see.I particullary like the last two...Mmmm!
I light a candle..I sit down... smile ... and I want to listen to these songs all over again ...and again....!!!!


A pop production dream!
Simultaneously dreamy, upbeat, and bittersweet EP. Take a bit of George Harrison-ish guitar work, some Pink Floyd atmospherics, some Odessey and Oracle-era Zombies keyboard sounds, and tie it together with a mid-90s Trash Can Sinatras sort of production and... Well, it still doesn\'t sound exactly like any of those things. I\'m still trying to wrap my head around the gorgeousness of the production here. All I know is that I thoroughly enjoy it, and this is yet another excellent release by The Brigadier!

Another bumper six-pack of songs!
The appeal of The Brigadier as an innovative self-produced indie recording artist is in his unique, offbeat, highly-original intelligent pop music - cleverly crafted, super-catchy songs ranging from atmospheric moody ballads to infectious dance-floor fillers bursting with clap-happy beats and singalong choruses. All with The Brigadier’s trademark Beach Boys-style high harmonies and quirky lyrics full of melancholic irony that are delivered perfectly with his distinctive soft sexy melodic vocal.
And what a bumper bulging six-pack of songs on this excellent new EP steeped with rain-soaked nostalgia for long winter nights and sleepy afternoons indoors!
“The Same Old Sunday” and “To Go On Holiday” are already proven hits on The Brigadier’s popular MySpace music page. And “Guy Fawkes” is a little gem, a great almost-instrumental with a rousing piano-driven pounding beat and gorgeous weeping guitar licks reminiscent of George Harrison.
Love the Lennonesque CD cover which is sooooo Brigadierish! The guy just goes from strength to strength with an endless supply of enchanting, lovely songs to brighten the drabbest of winter days like the glistening leaves on autumn trees after the rain has gone.
All hail The Brigadier! The new king of indie cool!
