Last Of The Great Pretenders

Last Of The Great Pretenders by Matt Nathanson
Released: Jul 2013
Last of the Great Pretenders doesn't contain any great shifts in style for Nathanson, but it's definitely the most impassioned album of the singer-songwriter's long and winding career. This is obvious right out the gate with opener "Earthquake Weather" building to a swirling crescendo. The tune is about summer romance in San Francisco, a theme that pops up time and time again, but especially on "Mission Bells" and the aptly titled "Last Days of Summer in San Francisco." That said, "Sunday New York Times" sends the romance back east, to the land of yellow taxis and St. Mark's.
