Matthew Good Coming To Saint Andrews Hall In Detroit This Sunday

February 20th, 2012  |  Published in News


Matthew Good will be bringing his North American Tour to Saint Andrews Hall this Sunday, February 26th,  in support of his current album “]Lights Of Endangered Species”] which was released on May 31st of last year.

“]Lights of Endangered Species”] is Matthew Good’s fifth solo album. Produced by Warne Livesey, Lights marked the sixth album the two had worked together on (including Matthew Good Band discography). While Good’s lyrics on Lights remain socio-political and personal in nature, the album marks a departure from Good’s rock-driven style with layered arrangements and instrumentation featuring horns, strings, woodwinds and piano – a reflection of Good’s musical upbringing and tastes, listening to big bands from Glenn Miller to Basie, as well as modern jazz, such as Miles Davis and Mingus. He also singled out the horn section on Simon and Garfunkel’s “]Keep the Customer Satisfied”] as a particular influence for the album’s fifth track, “]Zero Orchestra”]. The musical style also marked an effort from Good and Livesey to create something that was not necessarily “]commercially viable”], an idea that the two first discussed when they were mixing 1997’s Underdogs. Good has recalled writing what would be the eighth track on Lights, “]Set Me on Fire”], as having re-energized the concept.
